A Solar Power Kick for Africa

The World Future Council made it possible for football enthusiasts in the small non-electrified bush village of Oboadaka in Ghana to watch Ghana’s group games at the Football World Cup on a large screen. This unusual public viewing was powered by solar energy and came in conjunction with a workshop on renewable energy policies for sustainable African development. The WFC’s cooperation partner, Energiebau Sunergy Ghana Ltd., installed the solar panels to enable the viewing and give the village, its community and hospital, a permanent and reliable electricity supply.
