Huambo, Angola, 19 Feb – The Angolan Energy Ministry plans to set up a research and technology centre for renewable energies in Huambo province, ministerial representative Lando Joao said, cited by the newspaper Jornal de Angola.
Besides establishing a research centre and a wind and solar power map with a view to indicating Angola’s potential, the government is also seeking to educate Angolan personnel about renewable energies, Joao said during a meeting on the subject, in which the main speaker was a US expert.
“These are the first steps being taken to that end,” he added.
Angola thus seeks to boost its energy capacities, lower operational costs with thermal systems and ensure sustainable socio-economic development. (macauhub)
