ANSOLE Days ( are being organized in a yearly international gathering by ANSOLE. It is a FORUM of knowledge exchange among non-experts, scientists, researchers and industrial experts, all of them are dedicated to promote the using of solar energy in particular and other forms (like off-grid PV systems and grid-tied PV systems) of renewable energies in Africa. Energy is an acute problem in Africa, so there is need to preserve and protect the environment. Therefore, the first ANSOLE DAYS 2012 with the topic “Solar Energy for Sustainable Development” will be held in Yaoundé (the administrative capital of Cameroon), from the 17th to the 19th of February 2012. The meeting will consist of fundamental sessions on various forms of solar energy conversation, oral and poster presentations of research results, presentations of networks in green energies and environmental protection, brain-storming round table discussions. African solar energy researchers are suitable for interdisciplinary interactions among african scientists, the only way to get out of the energy crisis, and our colleagues from abroad are going to support us and help in making better future for Africa.
