The global energy transition represents a pathway toward overwhelming change in the production and consumption of energy. 

What does this mean for many African countries?

A renewables-based energy transition promises to deliver vast socio-economic benefits to countries across Africa, improving energy access, creating jobs and boosting energy security. At the same time, there is a risk that African countries will be barred from monetising their remaining hydrocarbon wealth and they may not be able to participate in leading roles in this transformation that is currently widely driven by technology interventions developed in the traditional industrialised countries.

For this webinar “The future of Energy in Africa” that is part of our global Energy transition series, we have invited speakers that represent technology providers and impact investors to learn about their views on the short, mid, and long term consequences of the Energy Transition on the continent.

We also speak with those in Government with direct insight, control and on-the-ground expertise about the immediate impact the Energy Transition has on their country.
