Africa is still facing high energy access needs for its population in order to pursue its economic and social development. But it is also a continent rich in water resources, wind and solar, which must decide how to operate its energy transition, in concert with the actors of the territories. Renewable energies and local energy production present an opportunity to increase access to low carbon energy and job creation. This workshop will bring together actors from the energy sector, local authorities, but also associations, researchers or private operators, to showcase good practices and propose a common roadmap to accelerate the territorial energy transition in Africa.
