The Centre will provide interdisciplinary research opportunities to graduate students, post-doctors, and visiting scientists. In addition to these activities in higher education, The Centre will be teaming up with many Universities. In Africa, we need to raise awareness of cellulosic bio fuels, carbon emissions from energy use, solar energy, solar thermal, wind, hydro and obstacles to a successful bio fuel economy

Masters of Science, (M.Sc) in Sustainable Energy

The Sustainable Energy Centre of Excellence offers different courses on 23 Masters of Science, (M.Sc) in Sustainable Energy in different fields and areas of specialization, which will be integrated in the near future. In total, about 78 professors and staff members will contribute to the courses.


The staff and partners of the Regional Sustainable Energy Centre of Excellence for Sub Sahara Africa, Education and Outreach area inform a variety of audiences about Sustainable Energy research, energy concerns, and sustainability issues affecting our planet.
