How Morocco tapped into Africa's renewable energy potential. #investorseurope #culture | Jean Boulle Luxury | Scoop.it
We look to Morocco's success story for lessons on getting clean energy to 600 million people in Africa.
AGNES-SENGA TUPPER's insight:

"Morocco’s experience with solar power offers key lessons for policymakers elsewhere in Africa who are seeking a robust pathway for addressing energy access challenges."

This article is about providing reliable, affordable and sustainable access to energy in Morocco. Around 1.2 billion people are energy poor. Energy poor means that they do not have access to electricity. More than 2.7 billion people rely on fuel-wood and other traditional biomass sources for cooking. Electricity plays an important role in moving forward with social and economic goals. Areas that lack electricity access often struggle to reach and contact doctors and nurses. Modern energy access also provides important benefits such as public lighting and security. With reliable access to electricity positively can affect education. Morocco went from 71.1 percent electricity access in 2000 to 98 percent access in 2010 and 100 percent access in 2012. In 2015, 34 percent of the country’s energy supply was provided by renewable energy. It may not be possible to scale Morocco’s successes to the continent at large because of financial problems.

This helps me understand Africa because I knew that a lot or most countries in Africa was energy poor, but the fact that Morocco brought 71.1 percent of electricity access to 100 percent was very impressive. I didn't know that renewable energy would impact this much. I think that other countries in Africa should attempt to have solar panels and other renewable energy sources. It might cause an impact. It might not be a big impact or might not even be successful. I still they they should try it.

The article, "How Morocco tapped into Africa's renewable energy potential", written by Emmanuel Awofadeju talks about how Morocco has found a way to efficiently supply renewable energy to its citizens and across Africa. Since less than half of the population in Africa have no access to electricity and energy they have to find an easy way to supply the African population with energy. Morocco is placing an investment in their renewable energy source, solar power, in order to supply solar power to the people across the country. Many other countries are also being inspired to try and invest in renewable energy sources to allow their citizens to have access to energy and electricity. Although the location and physical feature of many African countries are different they are trying to come up with ways to introduce renewable energy as a source of energy. 

This article relates to our Science class as we were learning about renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Since we learned about the pros and cons of each, I found it very interesting for Morocco to change to solar energy as it would be very beneficial for them. This change will allow them to prosper and advance technology wise much faster with more people being introduced to electricity and modern technology. This article was especially interesting as it would be nice for Africa to gain more access to energy supplies helping them catch up (technology wise) to more developed countries in Europe and the Americas.

Africa is really rich in energy resources but very poor in energy supply. Even though energy use in Africa has increased by 45 percent between 2000 - 2012, 600 million people in Africa are still energy poor, meaning they don't have access to energy and some even cooks with fuel-wood and other biomass sources. Since Africa has potential because their energy resources are tremendous, UN decides to help Africa establish clean energy such as  hydroelectricity and solar energy.

I feel really sad for people who doesn't have electricity at their homes, I cannot imagine living after the sun sets. I wouldn't be able to do homework or watch TV. I think this important because I think that Africa has the least energy but has the most potential, 30 percent of oil  is imported from Africa. It is important to class because people aren't able to cook or study without electricity, and having electricity will somewhat help Africa have a more stable economic.

The Boulle Luxury Experience: Sun King TM Diamond Coating In March 2016, after years of investment in research and subsequent development of its proprietary diamond coating technology, the Jean Boulle Luxury Group ("Boulle Luxury")  announced the launch of its patent-pending  Sun King Diamond Coating for luxury finishes, and confirmed the delivery of its first multi-million diamond-coated car finish in Geneva. In March 2017, Boulle Luxury announced that its High Tech. luxury diamond finish technology had been used in a paint exhibited on a Rolls-Royce Ghost Elegance (EWB) at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS).  Boulle Luxury worked with the Bespoke division of Rolls Royce Motor Cars Limited (www.rolls-roycemotorcars.com) to import the sea diamonds from Namibia and to produce the diamond compound in Holland  and Germany that was used on the  car displayed by Rolls Royce Motor Cars Limited at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. http://Boulle.co/ha2y9   The proprietary, patent-pending Boulle Luxury finish enables ultra high-end producers of luxury automobiles, executive jets and superyachts to offer a diamond-inlay coating that is unsurpassable in strength and absolutely incomparable in beauty and visual depth. When applying the Boulle Luxury Diamond Finish, the existing paintwork is not affected and remains in situ whilst the topcoat is chemically removed and replaced with our patent-pending diamond coating. The Chairman, C.E.O. and Directors of the Jean Boulle Luxury Group include a number of former De Beers Executives who have since 2016 expanded the Group’s diamond technology from Luxury Cars into the SuperYacht and Aerospace Sectors.  Disclaimer : this page is not intended for any specific nationality or jurisdiction.
