Commercial and industrial organisations merit a special focus in the Enlit Africa programme 

The energy transition is real and gaining momentum across Africa. Utilities across the continent are working to transition from fossil fuel generation to a system that is clean, green, sustainable and just. 

However, the energy transition is not just affecting utilities - it is also impacting commercial and industrial entities in a way that deserves attention. Specifically, we are talking about the tectonic shift from being a mere consumers of energy to becoming a producer of that same energy. As the role of ‘prosumers’ (a producer-consumer) in Africa is gaining ground, there are important questions to be answered – around the role of storage, technology, legal and regulatory requirements and how to get started. We plan on bringing this important conversation to the table at Enlit Africa, exploring self-generation and storage in mining, agriculture, commerce, industry and even in municipal circles.
