Refilling Lake Chad With Water From The Congo River Using Solar Power

June 24th, 2019 | by David Zarembka

Decades ago, when I was in high school, I read Willy Ley’s book Engineer’s Dreams: Great Projects that Could Come True. I vividly remember one of these gigantic, pie-in-the-sky dream projects. If the Congo River were dammed at the right spot, a large lake would form. It would then overflow into a river feeding into Lake Chad. Lake Chad would fill up to its prehistoric level and would then overflow into an ancient river that once flowed through Algeria and Morocco into the Mediterranean Sea


Electric Car Sales In Emerging EV Markets — Chapter 1: Africa

November 24th, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

While EV adoption is fairly well documented in North America, Europe, and Asia, other geographies have been mostly or entirely absent from the media coverage — like Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.

As such, I have split this topic in three chapters — one for Africa, the second for the Middle East, and the third for Latin America. Here, I am covering chapter 1, Africa


Algeria Pursuing LPG Vehicle Conversions, Solar PV Build Out, & Energy Efficiency Programs As Solution To Falling Oil Industry Revenues

As a partial solution to falling oil industry revenues, the government of Algeria has unveiled a suite of new programs meant to improve the country's financial situation, including incentive programs for vehicle owners who convert their vehicles to run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) rather than petrol/gasoline or diesel, a solar PV facility build out, and energy efficiency programs.


Global Solar Demand Will Exceed 80 GW In 2017; 9.6 GW Awarded In Q3 Alone

July 19th, 2017 | by Joshua S Hill

The latest comprehensive solar tracking data from GTM Research is good news across the board for the global solar industry, which is currently tracking 17.4 GW of solar PV tenders, predicts 9.6 GW will be awarded in the third quarter alone, and expects global demand to exceed 80 GW for the first time -- in a year which actually sees smaller growth.
