Google Solar in Africa

Google Green

Keep up with Google Green and you will see its movement into more green. I project that technology will move the renewable industry forward as they seek solutions to gain energy sources to support their grid thereby, enhancing the overall grid safety, strength and expansion.  The next work of “Google pumps $12M into African solar energy project” is another of the line of solar projects invested under Google Green .

Venture Beat reported “The investment totals $12 million and marks the search company’s first investment in Africa. This sum is part of a larger $260 million round including investors such as SolarReserve, a U.S. solar power developer; Intikon Energy, a South African renewable energy developer; and the Kensani Group, a South African empowerment investment firm.”

“The Jasper Power Project will be an advanced photovoltaic plant capable of generating 96 MW of clean energy for residents of South Africa. The project is designed not only to meet the country’s renewable energy goals but also to create long-term jobs and economic opportunity.”

This also fall in line with Google focus on expanding networks around the world. In developing nations where their is moderate infrastructure solar and other renewable solutions will be necessary to power energy and leverage connectivity. The landmass of Africa for those who have not touched land is more than an eye or thought can see or imagine. This massive infrastructural project will take on building smart grids, linkages and energy opportunities leading to jobs and development.

“Back in 2008, South Africa experienced a severe energy shortage, which resulted in blackouts throughout the country and slowed down economic growth,” writes Google energy and sustainability director Rick Needham today on the company blog.”

As we focus on Africa it is not at all unreasonable to take the jump that many nations will over the next five years experience sever to moderate blackouts. These events then will pursue a  line of inquiry as to how to support and reduce such occurrences. To the swift and agile goes and to the slow it also goes. No one nation is averse to energy shortages and brownouts.
