A new study by researchers from Vrije Universiteit Brussel, KU Leuven, the International Renewable Energy Agency and Climate Analytics has outlined the potential for an integrated hydro-solar-wind strategy to develop West Africa’s power sector while limiting the use of gas and other fossil fuels. The results of the study, which were published in May in the scientific journal Nature Sustainability, show that pooling regional resources and planning transmission grid expansion would allow optimal exploitation of the region’s renewable potential.
