Of critical concern is that the world’s supply of fos¬sil fuels and its reserves are decreasing and locating new reserves has become difficult. This shift in energy sources pose a challenge and opportunity for Africa, as it will need substantial investment in infrastructure, technology and human capital for Africa to catch up with the in-ternational trends of generating and supplying energy from renewable sources. Of greater ad-vantage is that Africa is endowed with abundant sources of renewable energy, which if exploit-ed maximally can place Africa in the forefront of the world’s energy production and supply.
