Country assumes commitment to use 77 percent of clean energy by 2025

The country is committed to reaching the target of 77 percent clean energy by 2025. The commitment was made this Tuesday by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, during his intervention in a panel on clean energy in Africa, within the scope of the Week of Sustainability, taking place in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates.


"Our objective is to guarantee that, by 2025, at least 77 percent of the energy produced in the country will be produced by non-polluting sources", said the head of state.

The President of the Republic also informed that the country already produces around 4.3 gigawatts of energy from non-polluting sources.

"The country currently produces about 4.3 gigawatts of energy from non-polluting sources, we are building a large hydroelectric dam that will add to that another 2.3 gigawatts of hydroelectric energy and we have a program to produce another 1.2 gigawatts of energy from solar parks", he stated.

Thus, he reiterated that the objective is, within three years, to ensure that at least 77 percent of the energy produced in Angola comes from non-polluting sources. "Our objective is to guarantee that, by 2025, at least 77 percent of the energy produced in the country will be produced by non-polluting sources, so we will reach, by that time, around 7.5 gigawatts of energy produced by non-polluting sources", advanced.

The head of state also stressed that the country is "taking the first steps" in the universe of green hydrogen production: "We are also taking the first steps towards producing energy from green hydrogen".

"We are also open to introducing wind energy production in our country", he added.

In his speech, João Lourenço also referred that Angola is also working on "transporting that energy to every corner" of the country. "Transport and guarantee home connections so that the population can consume this energy that does not come from polluting sources", he added.

At the moment, according to Angop, the country already produces 76 percent of energy based on non-polluting sources. At the continental level, Africa is assumed to be the least polluting continent, as it emits 25 percent of greenhouse gas.

At the continental level, the head of state clarified that one of the goals of the African continent is to achieve industrialization "in the coming decades", but warned that, although there is such a goal, Africa must not make the same mistakes that the currently industrialized countries have made.

"We must be careful not to achieve this objective of industrialization by committing the same mistakes that the current industrialized countries have committed, that is, we want to industrialize our continent at the expense of clean energy, renewable energy", he stressed.

In addition to João Lourenço, the panel also had the participation of the president of Zambia, Hakainde Hichilema.
