The 23rd Africa Energy Forum will arrive in London on the 15th-17th November 2021, once again uniting governments, utilities and regulators with development finance institutions, commercial banks, power developers, technology providers, EPCs and professional services.
The impact of COVID-19 magnifies the need to be able to deliver energy in times of crises. We’ll look ahead to the digitization of the energy sector and how to harness technology so humanity can recover better.
This theme explores the relationship between energy, technology, purpose and inclusivity, seeking to understand how technological innovation can work hand in hand with humans to enhance energy security, sustainability and energy access in a post-COVID future.
With a vast wave of investment set to sweep Africa for energy, infrastructure and digitalization, the Africa Energy Forum aims to help towards harnessing this potential so the continent doesn’t just recover – it recovers better.
Some of the topics to be covered:
- What does Africa want and need when it comes to energy transition?
- What are the politics of not financing gas – does it even make sense?
- Is the current IPP model sustainable?
- Partnerships to help utilities become more efficient
- Building capacity building on the grid for new projects
- Developing battery storage technologies on the continent
- Connecting on-grid, off-grid and mini grid solutions for a coherent energy strategy.
- Building the business framework to produce hydrogen at scale
