Energy and Earth Sciences Council

Research in alternative energies started in 1950 in the Sudan, with the building of a number of air- mills in the Gazera area for supply of drinking-water, for human consumption. In 1972 the Energy Research Institute was established, and in 2001 the Institute was affiliated to the Ministry of Science and Technology, and became responsible for supervision of relevant research programs sponsored by SAS.
