Nuclear power is the answer to Africa's electricity crisis, experts say

By Edith Mutethya in Nairobi, Kenya | China Daily | Updated: 2019-10-21 07:51

Africa should increase nuclear power investment as a solution to the continent's current electricity crisis and to help fight global climate change.

Sector experts said that, without significantly increasing the use of nuclear power, it will be difficult for African countries to produce adequate electricity for industries and reduce carbon emissions.

Currently, South Africa is the only African country with a commercial nuclear power plant. However, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria and Sudan are already being assessed for their readiness to embark on a nuclear energy program. And Algeria, Tunisia, Uganda and Zambia are also considering the power source.
