#8 Energy Made in Africa
In Africa, we have an abundance of sunlight to power our solar future! Every five days, the sun provides the Earth with as much energy as all proven supplies of oil, coal, and natural gas.
This episode has a focus on how we can create new clean energy solutions for South Africa and Africa by thinking differently! We need to come up with new ways to manufacture and produce energy and create an internet of energy so that we can develop a new market for energy that will democratise the industry and create a flourishing new energy economy! How can we create energy abundance for a prosperous future?
