"Climate Change and Renewable Energies in Zambia"
Zambian-Italian Cultural Centre - Lusaka, Zambia
Postponed: new date TBD
Diversifying the energy mix with variable renewables will bring cost and reliability advantages additionally to the positive climate impacts.
This business-to-government event, promoted and organized by the Embassy of Italy in Zambia in partnership with RES4Africa Foundation, is aimed at:
- Outlining and nurturing opportunities for collaboration in the field of renewable energies, as answer to the climate crisis;
- Discussing financial guarantees and some of the key barriers to investments;
- Facilitating business-to-business meetings.
Following the signing of a MoU between the Italian and Zambian Ministries of Environment, expertise from both countries will create a highly fruitful knowledge exchange on climate change issues. Combining the experience and lessons learned of all stakeholders attending this event, clear messages will contribute to building blocks defining Zambia’s future.
The RES4Africa Foundation has supported Zambian stakeholders in a clean energy transition since 2018 and is committed to continuing this support also in the future. The most recent collaboration between RES4Africa, Enel Foundation, CESI, the Ministry of Energy, ZESCO and ERB resulted in a RE Grid Integration Study, which assessed the maximum amount of variable renewable energy that can be integrated into the grid while maintaining its stability. The event will offer the opportunity to discuss the results of this study.
