France pledges billions for renewables boost in Africa

02 Dec 2015

As part of climate change talks currently taking place in Paris, French president Francois Hollande has said that his government would double investments in renewable energy generation.

The money will primarily be used for constructing wind farms and solar power, with some hydroelectric projects planned, too. £1.4 billion will be spent across the continent between 2016 and 2020.
