Filling the gaps, focusing on best practices
8th July 2020
5 years after the adoption of the SDGs and with just 10 years ahead to achieve the Agenda’s objectives, RES4Africa Foundation in collaboration with Enel Green Power will present a strategic analysis to look at what happened in the last 10 years in Africa, as well as main gaps, best practices and lessons learned to achieve access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
This strategic narrative will move from the status of renewable energy in Africa to the needed actions, where RES4Africa is committed with its renewAfrica, The Missing Link, and the Water-Energy-Food Nexus initiatives, along with many other local and international partners and stakeholders.
The webinar will present the main findings of the strategic analysis, which is structured along the following key areas:
- “What happened in the last 10 years” analyses, among others, population and GDP growth, installed capacity, energy and electricity demand, LCOE and investments trends in the last 10 years.
- “What limited the renewable energy growth” analyses political commitment, objectives and targets achievement, grid and electrical system development, productive uses of energy, regulatory framework and investment risks.
- “The time to act is now” presents the key recommendations to overcoming highlighted challenges, fostering renewable energy investments, and meeting continent and countries’ needs.
The webinar will also host interventions of international organisations that will highlight successful cases of the continent.
Format: 90 minutes (75’ + 15’ Q&A)
