2022 Event Theme

Collaboration to fast forward Africa’s Energy Transition

Collaboration is a key enabler of the effort that is driving the energy transition; collaboration between public sector and private sector, between utilities, regulators and government. Every every single person and organisation within the energy ecosystem - from generation to distribution, from manufacturer to financier to end user - has a role to play in ensuring the energy system of tomorrow is sustainable, affordable and achievable.

The combined efforts of the international community and the South African government to bring a deal of $8.5 billion to the table to support South Africa's energy transition is an example of such collaboration. During the event, we will explore how such collaboration across the continent can be utilised to mobilise investment and scale up energy transition efforts.
