This week in African politics__Can the public cut down on "energy crisis"?

Citing France 24, this week, South Africa has pledged billions of dollars to fight the "energy crisis" within South Africa.

A deficit of reliable modern energy outlets is a common problem across much of the African continent.
This includes issues with electric power grids. It also includes the issues of sustainable energy, as many African nations are still preoccupied with older forms of industrial energy resource sourcing such as coal. Energypedia.info has called South Africa one of the 15 largest nations for energy pollutant emissions. South Africa generated 93% of its electricity from coal at the time Energypedia conducted its investigation. This is between the 2014-2018 era and so the number may trend in significantly different margins. It here serves the purpose of highlighting how steeply involved South Africa has been in the coal industry within the last half-decade.

Will the motion to incorporate billions of dollars into energy plans be a positive move for the South African "energy crisis"? Or will the cycle these funds take through the system create some other compounded issues?

In following posts, The New African Living Standard will be watching these numbers to see if the new energy budget plan is improving South African energy. What can publicly traded companies do to reduce the "energy crisis"? We endeavor to see patterns that may give us actionable solutions at a public level.

Coronavirus Yet To Invade Africa, But Is Already Having Impact

As of this writing, there are 315 cases of Wuhan Coronavirus reported outside of China. By what can only be described as a miracle, none of those cases are in Africa.
Yet Africa is not immune to the consequences of the disease. As is true of any disease, there are and will be significant economic fallout both from the disease itself and from the quarantine and containment procedures instituted inside China and internationally. For Africa, much of that fallout will be felt almost immediately.

This is the new official web handle for the New African Living Standard. The New African Living Standard is a passion news project created out of the efforts of the FirmRock Children's Helper media department to bring Africa news by Africans and for Africans.

Over the course of the next few months, we intend to build this project to also include United States correspondence. The FirmRock Press Team is based in the United States and so this is a logical development.

For more information on the original New African Living Standard as it appears via LinkedIn go to this page.
