How are renewable energies perceived in Ghana and Nigeria?
The aim of the thesis is to examine the social representation of the development of renewable energies in Africa: focusing on the scenario, dynamics, other energies, and the role of oil. The originality of the situation in Ghana and Nigeria has been analysed: geopolitical and economic situation, energy dynamics, relations with other African countries, their role as oil-producing countries. It is emphasized that the question of renewable energies is central for this continent which cannot bet on a strategy of energy centralization. The subject is approached by the administration of an age-quota sampled questionnaire that will be administered in Ghana and Nigeria trying to cover all the necessary issues to give the most complete and effective overview of the perception of renewable energies in both countries.
