AN AGENDA FOR ALL STAKEHOLDERS

There are significant pockets of growth in the African electricity supply industry — from C&I in South Africa, Nigerian DER and climate-tech projects in Kenya as well as minerals industries more widely, to a new appreciation of the need for a major upgrade of transmission infrastructure — but levels of private investment continue to disappoint in far too many jurisdictions. AIX P&R 2024 will ask how African markets can emerge from a difficult period?
