Join us for a thought provoking discussion with our panel of experts on the topic of Energy Access in Africa.
In Africa, the number of people gaining access to electricity rose from 9 million a year between 2000 and 2013 to 20 million people between 2014 and 2019, outpacing population growth. Despite that fact, in Sub-Saharan Africa, just 46.7% of the population had access to electricity in 2019. How do we make sure that energy is more widely accessible in Africa in a world becoming more conscious about climate change? How should we balance Africa’s rising energy needs and the world’s increasing need for clean energy generation?
