International pop singer Akon, whose Akon Lighting Africa initiative aims to bring electricity to some of the 600 million Africans who currently lack it, announced the launch of a new “Solar
Academy” for the people of Africa.
The institution, scheduled to open this summer in Mali, will train African engineers and entrepreneurs with the skills needed to develop solar-powered electricity systems and micro grids.
Training equipment and programs will be supplied by European angel investors.
The group announced the launch of the academy at the second United Nations Sustainable Energy for All Forum in New York.
This is a massive plan and it will turn out just great..
