Is Africa taking advantage of their renewable energy potential?

    I don’t think any country is taking full advantage of their renewable energy potential.  Unfortunately we have a lot of potential, the sun hits the earth every day with much more energy than we need to power our planet, but we need a lot more capital to build these renewable energy systems all over the world.  I found an document published by the director of the African Energy Policy Research Network which states that Africa is harnessing only 7% of its hydro potential, and less than 1% of its geothermal potential.  They certainly have a long way to go in terms of becoming sustainable, and hopefully countries or companies will invest the capital to do so.
