IRENA has published a new report claiming that the falling technology costs of solar PV are likely to result in an installation boom across Africa. “In recent years, solar PV costs have dropped dramatically and will continue to do so with further declines of up to 59 per cent possible in the next ten years,” said IRENA Director-General Adnan Z. Amin. “These cost reductions, coupled with vast solar potential on the continent, present a huge opportunity for Africa."
