A Stage That Shapes The Future Of The Energy Transition

New Energy Landscape

This theme explores the reality of a changing energy landscape where the transition is balanced between least cost fossil fuels and the growing renewable energy sector. It looks at how productive use of energy influences the financial sustainability of the transition and where there are exciting developments in mini-grid and decentralised energy options.

The hub focuses on the fastest areas of change, the technologies that are facilitating flexibility and integration and the investment case for these.

Future Cities

The Future Cities theme explores solutions needed to confront Africa’s current urban living challenges to create the cities of tomorrow. It looks at the high-tech solutions needed to make smart cities a reality for Africa. Where will the energy and water come from to empower our fast growing cities? Where do prosumers fit into the energy mix and how do we incorporate energy efficiency measures into city infrastructure? What are the best ways to rapidly move large amounts of people around these cities?

The hub explores best practice already being put in place in the cities of today, tracking African solutions to African problems.

Finance, Investment and Strategy

Finance, Investment and Strategy is your ‘starting line’ for delivering on Africa’s commitment to economic growth, energy access, climate change and more. Taking a forward-looking approach, the 2021 Finance, Investment and Strategy season includes episodes on the correlation between climate finance and energy strategy, and the influence of local currency financing for off-grid projects. 

In these dialogues, we aim to present the facts and challenge whether there is a different way to approach climate finance, energy roadmaps, currency exchange risks, and the financing of energy projects in general.

CLIMATE FINANCE | LOCAL CURRENCY

INVESTMENT RISK | ENERGY STRATEGY

DEVELOPMENT FINANCE | FOERIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT
