This book sums up a remarkable process of energy research and dialogue that has been ongoing amongst African scholars and policy-makers. It presents what is now known about the innovation and deployment of a whole variety of renewable energy technologies across the whole of Eastern Africa, including the Horn, and Southern Africa, including South Africa. Chapters deal with bio-energy, solar and wind energy, and small hydro technologies, and how these environmentally sustainable ways of producing energy are disseminated. The authors examine the geo-political and socio-economic context of Africa's energy sector, its financing, institutional structures for energy management, human resource development, equity and access, and environmental considerations.
