Solar Energy in Africa in 2020 : four scenarios for the African Development Bank[Scenario] by Arnaud Alias, Yahia Bensouda, Victor Cabanes, Hugues Guinoiseau, Gaëtan Irrmann

2008-03-26

The authors were part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC Paris in 2006/2007

Africa is the poorest continent both from an economic and technological standpoint and this is notably caused by a lack of energy infrastructures. We explore here what could happen if the ADB decided today to launch a program to develop the Africa's energy network as a means to develop its economy, using its first energy source: sun. In this article, we present the corresponding scenarios  in the form of four possible speeches at the ADB summit in 2020.
