UN Urges Africa Go Geothermic

As heavily indebted Africa sinks under rising oil prices, a UN-sponsored project aims to give the continent access to vast reserves of cheap, clean energy.

The African Rift Geothermal facility project aims to tap the heat trapped in rocks deep beneath the floor of the geological feature that runs from the Red Sea to Mozambique.

The Rift Valley
runs through Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania and Malawi through Mozambique.
