A Norwegian solar power company, REC (Renewable Energy Corporation), is planning to enter the African renewable energy market on the back of expectations that Africa will see 100GW of solar power being generated by 2030, according to a press statement.
The company will focus on ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States), Eastern Africa and Southern Africa, bringing high-efficiency solar panels, kit solutions and solar hybrid boxes to bear on those markets.
