In the near future, the current fossil energy-based world economy needs to be replaced with circular economy relying on energy harvested from renewable sources, primarily sunlight. The necessary preconditions and the local requirements for such a profound transition towards renewable energy sources differ between industrialised countries like Germany and developing countries such as those in the sub-Saharan region. For example, in Africa, solar irradiation is more intense and more reliable than in Europe. For this reason, researchers in Germany and sub-Saharan Africa may benefit from collaborations within the research field.
