Gutteres leads call to make Africa 'a renewable energy superpower '.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called on world leaders to unite in bolstering Africa's renewable energy capabilities, as the continent deals with the devastating consequences of climate change. At the first African climate  summit in Nairobi, Mr Guterres said Africa had abundant renewable energy potential. “Renewable energy could be the African miracle but we must make it happen. We must all work together for Africa to become a renewable energy superpower,” he said. Now is the time to bring together African countries with developed countries, financial institutions and technology companies to create a true African Renewable Energy Alliance.” He said the continent's abundant mineral reserves made up 30 per cent of the global total required for renewable and low-carbon technology such as solar power, electric vehicles and battery storage.
