On 6 September 2018 pv magazine International reported: An Africa power sector scorecard shows that solar will make inroads into the African energy sector over the next two years, accounting for 9 percent of new capacity additions, as renewables uptake across the continent continues to grow. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

The new report, titled African Energy Atlas finds that a net 15.5 GW of new installed energy capacity was added in Africa in 2017, which kept up with the population growth across all parts of the continent, except Central Africa, as well as with GDP growth in all regions, except East Africa.

... The semiarid region of western and central Africa on the southern edge of the Sahara desert, known as the Sahel region, is likely to have an even brighter renewable energy future. It is poised to host up to 10 GW of solar, following this year's launch of the Desert to Power program, initiated by the African Development Bank, alongside the Green Climate Fund and the Africa 50 investment fund.
