Accelerating Africa’s energy transition
3rd Nov 2022 – Online
Join for a conversation with two renowned energy experts; Lord Adair Turner, Chair of the Energy Transitions Commission – a global coalition of energy leaders, committed to achieving net-zero emissions by mid-century; and Rose Mutiso, Research Director at the Energy for Growth Hub – a leading international research network focused on building a high-energy future for all.
In this event we will explore the action needed for the transition to net-zero and resilient energy systems, and discuss how Africa’s transition differs from other regions.
What does a just transition to net zero in Africa, i.e. one inclusive of workers and communities, mean in practice? What is the role of DFIs and impact investors in accelerating the transition? How can the transition support the achievement of the other sustainable development goals and are there any trade-offs?
