Conversations on Africa COP27
The spotlight turns on Africa
As the continent looks to bridge the huge gap between demand and supply in the energy and infrastructure sectors (which is only set to widen with continued population growth and accelerating urbanisation), the resources and technologies that African governments choose to deploy will have a major impact on efforts to tackle global climate change.
Should Africa choose economic growth, focus on energy transition or can it pursue both?
Putting energy transition back on track in North Africa
Morocco – great progress, but more to do in energy transition
Reaching for opportunities in an energy crisis in South Africa
Africa’s energy transition will take time
Concluding our series on COP27, Tim calls for a pragmatic approach, recognising that, vital though energy transition is, it will not happen overnight.
We hope you find the series insightful. With the right support and investment, all the evidence, we believe, indicates that energy transition will inevitably accelerate, given time. And as COP27 concludes, that is a reason for real optimism.
