Sudasolar is an online clean energy advocacy initiative. The aim of this initiative is to educate people (especially youth who are concerned about climate change) about solar energy, the different solar energy technologies, how to design small systems, cost matters, and how do we scale the impact of this technology.

As part of this initiative, I create short articles, videos, and social media content. Most of the content in this website is geared towards the average non-expert reader.

I have been working on this project since July 2017. Back then, my focus was mainly on Arabic content because it is the main language in my home country; Sudan. However, I have recently started creating multilingual content to give Sudasolar a more global impact. 

Why Solar Energy?

For three reasons:

  • It is one of the most effective technologies to eradicate energy poverty which affects 600 million in Africa. Energy poverty hinders sustainable development.
  • It is associated with the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) no 7: Affordable and Clean Energy, and SDG no 13: Climate Action. 
  • Solar energy is one of the most abundant renewable energy resources, yet it is still underutilized. 

I invite to engage with this project by sharing any useful content on this website, the facebook page (#solar4sudan), or the Youtube Channel (#Sudasolar Vlog). I also invite you to get in touch with me if you would like to contribute to this project.

Solar greetings!
