Sanjeev Mansotra & Why Developing Countries Require Renewable Energy

Africa’s modern-day transformation process, from its economic growth to expanding diversification, is an encouraging development, but investments in renewable energy will need to be considered to sustain the continent’s evolving status. Solar energy is now a cheaper alternative to fossil fuel, and it is a form of fuel that can be harnessed anywhere in the world, which makes it the logical preference ahead of resources that are scarcely available and can only be uncovered with the right equipment. Africa is blessed with renewable energy resources, including wind, sun and hydro. With the help of policy makers to create frameworks that promote hefty investments and expedite market development through structured policies, not to mention the approval of the regional masses, renewable energy can assist Africa in keeping up with its own progress. Sanjeev Mansotra, a prospering entrepreneur and businessman, reveals why renewable energy is essential for Africa’s present and future.
