The Challenge

While there are efforts by various stakeholders to address some of the barriers to sustainable energy development in Africa, the inadequacy of skilled human resource remains almost unattended to.  Yet, adequate human capacity is crucial to the optimum conversion of Africa’s huge sustainable energy resources to drive socioeconomic development.  Therefore, there is need to bridge the knowledge gap if appreciable socioeconomic development must be achieved through sustainable energy development.

Therefore, Sustainable energy research activities have been limited due to the inadequate human resource with expertise on sustainable energy research in African universities. Therefore, many innovative research ideas have remained unexplored; limiting creativity and innovations in sustainable energy on the continent.
