14 November | South African Pavilion
As part of COP27, Carbon Tracker will be launching a report on Africa’s Energy Transition, highlighting the opportunities and challenges to getting all African nations on the path to a new energy era.
It will outline that Africa is the key to unlocking global Net Zero goals and that countries should not be blindsided by the fossil fuel industry. Favourable latitude, climate and weather patterns, coupled with the record low equipment price of new solar makes Africa one of the most suitable continents to capitalise on the new solar era. It is however important to flag that certain key economic factors still linger and may halt the accelerated growth of solar within the continent.
The objective of this session is to outline a pathway and key steps for Africa to successfully transition.This session will start with a short presentation of the findings from report author, followed by a panel discussion with policymaker and civil society experts.
