In their report, salve http://cyancdesign.com/wp-includes/session.php the panel highlighted that there is an opportunity in having a global switch from kerosene lamps to solar lighting, prostate http://coachesacrosscontinents.org/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/wc-formatting-functions.php saying that this is not only one of the only as cheap options in combating climate change but also a means to ensure better health, income and educational benefits for some of the world’s poorest people.

“Small solar lights are available now, and these can help build the trust and knowledge needed for larger domestic and commercial low carbon emitting systems and greater levels of renewable energy adoption across Africa,” the report showed.

The IPCC report added, “In the majority of low-concentration stabilization scenarios, the share of low carbon electricity supply increases from the current share of approximately 30% to more than 80% by 2050.”

“Fossil fuels without carbon capture and storage will need to be phased out entirely by the end of the century,” it asserted.

“Where they are given the choice, millions of families all across Africa are already turning to clean, safe solar lighting in their homes, reducing pollution, improving health and saving around 15% of their annual income.”

“This, followed by launches like the ‘Light the Way’ project by SolarAid, is geared at orienting people across Africa working towards a sustainable future.”

“From what we’ve seen so far, a low-carbon future will definitely be a future that is brighter,” the report also showed.
