We know the pressure digital industries put on energy resources, which in turn have a considerable impact on the environment. In addition to the need to limit energy consumption, digital operators in Africa must also overcome the barrier of often shaky power grids, immature connectivity and water scarcity. As a vast continent, the picture isn’t uniform, but solutions must in general provide reliable, sustainable access to these vital resources.
