Africa is experiencing what is considered to be its peak of energy sector production. More and more African countries are capitalising on new discoveries of large, commercially attractive reserves of oil and gas. However, the continent continues to face critical challenges in the energy sector. The current energy policies and existing systems need to be radically improved in order to support the economic development of Africa's fast-growing economies. Africa's energy supply is still insufficient and its high cost is still prohibitive for the majority of the continent's population.
With this in mind, this Forum will bring together all the major actors involved in the renewable energy sector in Africa, including African Ministers of Energy, energy companies, representatives of the European Union, African regional economic communities, development financial institutions, investors and financiers. The forum will offer a platform to significantly develop the African Renewable Energy sector by creating win-win solutions for governments, investors and businesses in Africa as well as internationally.
