From solar-powered ice makers in a fishing village to offshore wind parks, the 10-island nation of Cape Verde is seen as a trailblazer in the use of solar and wind power. The country has plans to generate all its energy from renewables by 2020.
On this week's eco@africa, we visit the Barbary macaques under threat in Morocco, see how waves are being harnessed to make green power and explore the project bringing solar lights to Burkina Faso.
A Cape Verde fishing village that couldn't afford the ice needed to keep its catch from going bad, invested in a solar-powered ice maker to solve the problem. It's been a win-win for the community.
On this week's eco@africa, we see how Nigeria is dealing with its e-trash, visit wind farms in the Cape Verde islands and a conservationist in Rwanda who is looking after gorillas. All this and much more!
Germany has a reputation for being a renewable energy leader - but some believe that the nation's long, still and dim winters threaten such green aspirations.
