Africa-enthusiast though you may be, yet you may have once had reason to assert that lives are lost needlessly in Africa. If so you are not alone: - someone else also, has observed in Africa that lives would have been saved, had live-saving equipments came to use, instead of lie unused due to lack of electricity. Desertec-Africa is of the opinion that sustainable electricity supply to hospitals would transform healthcare institutions across the continentin for good: - lives that are needlessly lost, because of sudden power failure or lack of it during surgery at hospitals, would be saved, as well as lead to improved health care services in the continent. Support the concept of clean energy from desert! Support Desrtec-Africa awareness campaign!
You may be the humane type of person, who, upon watching on television, pictures of the ever occurring starvation in some parts of Africa, is moved to do something to change the situation. Then you are also not alone in this regard. Someone else was equally moved to see to it that Desertec-Africa came into existence to encourage Africa to help itself, because this person felt it was wrong to play a spectator in one's own case, therefore Africa cannot sit on the sideline and watch while clean solar energy is produced on the African Sahara desert for transmission to Europe. Therefore, Desertec-Africa is of the opinion that the availability of affordable electricity that could sustain irrigation in Africa’s drought-prone regions would enable people in these regions prevent starvation sustainably. Drought may be unavoidable, starvation however, can be prevented by ameliorating the effects of drought. Give Africa electricity and it will feed itself. Support Desertec initiative for electricity for all.
You may also have noticed that Africa does not lack in professionals in any field, you are equaly right in this regard also, what Africa lacks is the enabling conditions to retain and attract professionals. Making electricity, the “mother of all enabling conditions”, readily available in Africa is a sure way to improve on work conditions across the continent, retain professional in Africa, trigger the return to Africa, of professions of Africa extraction who are outside Africa, as well as attract professionals from around the world to Africa.
If you have now realized how critical electricity is for Africa's development, then you may want to do more than be only a concerned observer of the development in Africa, who longs for Africa's transformation. You may want to, not only be part of Africa’s Transformation, but also be in the center of it, catalyze it. Support Desertec-Africa's initiative for large scale harnessing of clean solar energy falling as sunlight on Africa's deserts, arid sahel region and savanna grassland. Support our call on African countries and companies to establish solar thermal or wind power plant in Africa to meet Africa's acute electricity need. Desertec-Africa uses its awareness campaign to provide further information on how to go about this.
Support Desertec-Africa by
- lending your voice to make politicians and policy makers, media and corporate organizations as well as public and private institutions and individuals across the African continent aware of the importance of "clean energy from desert concept" and our “Africa-Wide Clean Energy Generation” initiative,
- availing yourself of our expertsie in developing "enabling" regulations or policies on renewable energy technologies that would enable countries, corporate organisations and individuals set up renewable energy generating facilities in Africa.
- availing yourself of our expertise in setting up either small, large scale solar thermal or wind generating facilities in Africa.
Support our recently initiated studies and research on the technically and economically most viable form of solar thermal power plant for Africa.
