Mini-grids, or localised renewable energy systems, are increasing energy accessibility for people across Africa, says Tombo Banda, clean energy access innovator. And with 500 million people still lacking access to electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa, relying instead on highly polluting materials like diesel and firewood, this climate solution will create better lives for millions of people, quickly! Tombo Banda joins TEDxLondon’s Climate Curious to break down how many countries are successfully leapfrogging to green energy solutions.
