1. Call for Chapter Contributions – Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Hydropower Generation in West Africa

Hydropower is the largest renewable source of electricity generation. Estimates show that about two-thirds of the world’s economically feasible potential of hydropower is yet to be exploited. In Sub-Saharan Africa where 25% of people have access to electricity, the development of hydropower could become a valuable contribution to ensure that African countries meet the universal access to electricity by 2050. Notwithstanding, the impact of climate change on the hydrological cycle has also raised concerns to existing hydropower schemes. The book seeks to compile various important topics from experts on the impact of climate change on hydropower energy generation in West Africa. This book compilation is part of part of the contribution to the CIRCLE Programme. You are invited to provide your chapter contribution in any of the following themes.

1. Climate Change and Hydro-Vision
2. Climate Change and Societal Change
3. Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development
4. Hydropower – Opportunities and Challenges
5. Hydropower and Changing Economic Needs
6. Legislation on Hydropower Use and Development
7. Re-engineering Hydropower Plant for Improved Performance
8. Hydropower Generation in West Africa – the Working Solution Manual

Kindly submit your contribution on or before the 31 July 2015. In case of any inquiries, please send an email to amos.kabobah@uenr.edu.gh or call to +233 502 390 690/+233 545 217 258.
