Cape Town, November 5-6 2007
Biofuels projects are being reviewed and implemented across the African continent with South Africa leading the development. It has been suggested that Biofuels have the potential to produce 10% of South Africa’s petrol and diesel needs by 2010. Biofuels are seen as one of the biggest economic opportunities for Africa, especially for job creation in rural areas. Exciting developments in this respect are taking place across the continent.
Co-sponsored by the EU body, the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) the second annual Biofuels Markets Africa conference will build upon the success of last year's event which attracted over 200 industry executives from 24 countries across Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas.

- »Within the framework of the TERNA wind energy programm of GTZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit GTZ GmbH) a site selection mission was carried out in Ethiopia. The project in Ethiopia is executed jointly with EEPCo - Ethiopian Electric Power Company and co-finanzed by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).
By end of February 2005, 11 wind measuring stations were installed at suitable sites for a wind park of approx. 50 MW. Both 10 m and 30 m towers were used; the first results are promising. After 6 months the best three sites will be selected for further studies.«reported by B. Jargstorf, Factor 4 Energy Projects GmbH
