Africa faces two crucial and related problems in providing access to energy to the poorer parts of our populations: Firstly; the widespread inefficient production and use of traditional energy sources such as fuel wood and agricultural residues. This poses economic, environmental and health treats. And secondly, the high uneven distribution and use of modern energy sources such as electricity, petroleum, liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) etc. This raises the important issues of economics, equity and quality of life.
