Abstract : Africa - especially sub-Saharan Africa - is lagging behind when it comes to connection to energy and telephone networks, but this could be an advantage enabling it to directly adopt local, adaptable and innovative solutions. The continent could thus become a vanguard in terms of future energy transitions and decentralised services. Mobile telephony is breaking the isolation of rural communities and the development of solar energy will facilitate the diversification of local economies. (Résumé d'auteur)
