Switch on Africa


The “Switch on Africa” campaign is aimed at catalyzing investment in renewable energy, improving access to the grid, cutting the cost of power to boost household access and protecting African forests through sustainable energy practices.


  1. Increase Africa’s electricity consumption to between Five to 10-fold by 2030 by catalysing massive increase in investment in clean energy – solar, wind, geothermal, and nuclear by western development partners.
  2. Lift Africa into prosperity by powering large-scale industrialization through constant availability of electricity by urging African governments to include nuclear energy in their energy mix to reduce the cost and intermittency of electricity.
  3. Save Africa’s forests by reducing household dependence on biomas fuels like charcoal and wood for cooking.
