The achievement of sustainable development depends on reliable energy sources. In Africa, rural electrification poses particular challenges. Autonomous energy resources such as solar, wind or hydropower are possible solutions. Africa has the greatest worldwide potential in solar energy. An overview of the current status of the research in solar energy in the central Africa region is presented. It appears that the research in the field of solar energy is promising. There are some research laboratories and private organizations working in the field, but the results are still under the expectations of the local populations. To boost these researches, it would be necessary to encourage and finance projects of regional integration. The Central African countries are aware of their potentiality in solar energy based on going projects.
