Solar Energy Potentials of Africa
There are two regions in Africa blessed with highest solar irradiation and huge potentials of generation clean electricity at low cost. It is like endless rainwater to collect freely, sell locally and export.
The first region includes parts of Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Chad and Niger. This region is capable of providing all Europe with all its huge electricity demands at lower price, fixed rate, stable clean energy.
The second region includes parts of Namibia, South Africa and Botswana. This region is capable of providing all African countries south of the Equator with all its huge electricity demands at lower price, fixed rate, stable clean energy.
The cost of generating one KWh from photovoltaic PV power stations in these two regions only is $0.03 and is higher in countries with low solar irradiation that makes generating electricity from PV solar energy unfeasible.
If the North African region can meet only half of the electricity demands in Europe this shall generate a net profit of 150 billion Euro/ annually
Within three years, it is possible to make a river in which electricity, produced from the Sun free of charge, shall flow at a volume of one thousand five hundred terawatts annually.
Making a river of solar electricity will not cost any state a single dollar. Rather, the states will get licensing and concessions fees from building financiers, estimated at a quarter of the revenues, for a period of eight years in which the cost of building is recovered with generous profit, and then states will get the full revenues.
This river feeds and pumps resources to the producing country or countries in Africa at the rate of one hundred and fifty billion euros annually if it served half of Europe’s needs
Gigantic Solar Energy is the Future, Do NOT Hesitate or Waste Time. In oil, gas and gold mining the first lengthy and expensive steps are exploration, design, digging and building, but in solar energy, it is just a simple process of collecting natural wealth, like harvesting rainwaters.
Solar energy is a clean product, sustainable project, safe and more profitable and needed more than metal mining and fossil fuels. The project adds huge side benefits and profits from attracting industries, providing job opportunities, revenues from raw materials, and lowering local prices for products. Create a destination for energy intensive manufacturing and benefit from the transfer of foreign technologies and expertise.
Making a river of solar electricity will not cost any state a single dollar. Rather, the states will get 25% of profits for licensing and concessions fees for eight years from building financiers, in which the cost of building is fully recovered plus generous profit 75% of the cost. Then states will get the full profits.
I am an Egyptian civil engineer, resident in Alexandria, Egypt. I am very keen to promote and get involved as a consultant in the production of electricity from PV solar energy in Algeria and in Botswana.
