#EnergyTransitionResearch | How Can We Develop Clean Energy in Africa? | AXA Research Fund
In Sub-Saharan Africa, remote areas are heavily diesel-dependent which is releasing carbon emissions that are harming our environment. So, what can researchers do to change this and become more environmentally friendly whilst improving the lives of those who are living in these remote areas?
Dr. Jiska de Groot, an AXA-supported researcher at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, is investigating what the remote communities of Sub-Saharan Africa want and need when it comes to the development of clean energy.
The objective of her research is to help design clean energy strategies specific for the remote areas of Sub-Saharan Africa to ensure sustainable energy transitions, suitable and accepted by the people living in those areas.
