Go Off-Grid & Stay Single for Life? A Warning. [Video]

Living the dream – or the nightmare? SQ’s Ronald uses Lego and other props in a discussion with Finn to illustrate the challenges of cutting ties with electricity companies completely by going off-grid with solar panels and batteries. While it’s possible to live off-grid using a solar battery costing under $10,000, Ronald says: "Don’t try to live off-grid with a $10,000 battery unless a) you’re a complete nutter like me, or b) you’re looking to get divorced." Ronald states a 2-person household is going to need at least $30,000 for a battery system alone – and they’ll have to be careful with electricity use. You can read more of Ronald’s logic on this topic here: https://www.solarquotes.com.au/blog/5-reasons-to-stay-on-grid/ This segment is from SolarQuotes TV Episode 9, which is all about off-grid living with solar power!

Fostering Africa’s Renewable Energy Transition [Video]

European SDG Roundtable co-organized with RES4Africa Foundation in the framework of the European SDG Summit 2021.Africa has shown great progress in the development of its solar energy markets in the last couple of years. However, much work still needs to be done to scale up renewable energy projects and to achieve real impact. Inadequate access to energy is still a major obstacle for Africa’s development. Following the current trajectory, in 2030 over 600 million people in Africa will be living without access to electricity (equivalent to 36% of the population). Bridging this energy access gap will require upward of 300 GW of renewable capacity. Most of the investment will have to come from the private sector, as public financing is not expected to exceed its current level of 15% (IRENA). So, how to mobilize private capital? Which challenges are still hampering private investments? And how to overcome them? This session aimed to answer these questions and to explore how to advance European investments in the African renewable energy sector, identifying how to scale up existing projects and maximise impact.For more information: https://www.csreurope.org/calendar/european-roundtable-fostering-africas-renewable-energy-transitionTo stay up-to-date: Newsletter: https://www.csreurope.org/newsbundle LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/csr-europe/Twitter: https://twitter.com/CSREuropeOrg
