Chamber Holds Webinar To Address Energy Poverty In Africa

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – As a build up to the forthcoming African Energy Week (AEW) holding in Cape Town, South Africa, from October 18 to October 21, Africa Energy Chamber (AEC) in collaboration with Rystad Energy will on Tuesday host an interactive webinar.

The webinar which will be held under the theme, “Energy Addition in Africa”, will bring together experts to discuss the issues and proffer solutions.

Electrifying Africa will take a collaborative and mixed-resource approach whereby fossil fuels and renewables are developed hand in hand. The discussants will examine why is this method so important in Africa and what role will fossil fuels play in improving energy access.

In rural areas across Africa, where energy poverty is more widespread owing to disconnections to national grid networks, the webinar will also look at what resources offer the best solution to improving electrification on the continent.

Notably, it has also been widely acknowledged that addressing energy poverty in Africa will require significant levels of investment. From a policy perspective, the panelists at the event will appraise how African governments have performed in terms of pushing for foreign investment in the continent’s power sector, they equally look at what else needs to be done to secure more foreign support and capital.
