Renewable Energy in Malawi? A Sustainable Future for the Warm Heart

A sustainable future is something we should aspire to. Expending natural resources in order to provide energy is a worldwide problem. In Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa, only about 9% of the population has access to electricity. Electricity in Malawi is controlled entirely by The Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (ESCOM) , a company owned by the government. This government-owned entity controls all of the power centers in all of Malawi. ESCOM provides limited electricity that is out of the financial reach of the majority of Malawi’s 16.7 million people. A lack of electricity has created additional problems within Malawi, as satisfying the energy needs of so many people has inevitably led to the exhaustion of natural resources. [with minor edits]
