Isabel dos Santos: An Advocate for Renewable Energy
Angola, the former Portuguese colony, is the homeland of the richest African woman. Angola, located in South Africa, supports a population of over 23 million people. The country has a GDP of 124 billion dollars, and is one of the wealthiest countries in Africa. The industries that contribute to its GDP consist of oil, mining, construction, transport, public administration, services, and transport. Although the country is a huge producer of oil. Isabel Dos Santos has joined the movement to produce reliable, renewable energy and allow it to be accessed across the country.
Successful business leaders such as Isabel Dos Santos, release that renewable energy such as hydropower, wind power and solar power. The strategy is to economically diversify the production of energy within the country. These business leaders have helped to draw up plans and seek funding to construct the infrastructure, such as the power facilities, to generate the energy. The benefit of this is the creation of more jobs, build networks for communication and build a new business in economically underserved communities across the country.
Isabel dos Santos is committed to building the networks of renewable energy in Angola, as well as, transforming the country into an economic powerhouse. As an entrepreneur, her extensive background and expertise, she is an inspiration for the next generation of “green entrepreneurs” across the African continent. She is adamant about transforming her country and other African countries to transform their economies. Isabel Dos says that today’s youth must be properly educated in order to be able to establish and grow Africa’s future green enterprises. The manner in which this can be done she claims, is a grass roots effort to shift the workforce from the lowest producing sectors into more productive sectors, such as green technology, through by educating the youth being raised in these communities.
