CEO of AJS Provides insights into Renewables for Africa’s Future
Antonio J. Silva Transportes e Logistica (AJS), Angola’s leading full-service solutions and logistics company for the transportation industry, announced that Luis Silva, CEO, was featured in an article on the importance of renewables in Africa. AJS has ventures in the renewables space, including the construction of a mini-hydro.
The article looks at Africa’s energy needs, and argues that African countries can be in the forefront of the renewables movement, creating more energy with less carbon footprint. It is expected that Africa’s energy needs will double by 2030, and that renewables including biomass, hydro power, wind and solar could potentially account for 22% of that requirement in the future.
Among other benefits of renewables, African countries have a chance to become carbon-neutral leaders, and will be a force for innovative energy ideas in the future. Additionally renewables are attracting investment, creating new opportunities for Africa’s energy entrepreneurs. Finally, increasing the availability of energy, while reducing costs, will be a boon to both people and industry in the region.
The article states: “Sub-Saharan African countries have a unique opportunity to develop and prosper based on renewable energy sources and lead the world in sustainable energy production. This is a future that all Africans can be proud of.”
