Africa Energy Forum in Barcelona: Powering Africa's Future with Global Partners
Key Ideas
  • Africa Energy Forum in Barcelona will bring together high-level officials and investors to address Africa's energy landscape and the future of energy systems.
  • Discussion will focus on the need for increased investment in renewable energy in Africa to meet climate goals and drive economic growth.
  • The event will feature sessions on hydrogen potential, energy storage, renewable projects, power markets, and Africa's energy transition, aiming to accelerate universal access.
The Africa Energy Forum (aef) in Barcelona, Spain, will host over 2,500 delegates including 33 African ministers and 100 public sector officials. The conference will emphasize Africa's energy needs in alignment with global goals, with Spain committing funding to South Africa and green hydrogen projects in Mauritania. Despite progress in renewable energy, there is a significant gap in climate finance for Africa. Private sector readiness for investments is questioned, highlighting the necessity for faster project implementation. The event will address challenges faced by both the public and private sectors, aiming to foster collaboration and expedite energy projects. Key topics include hydrogen potential, energy storage, renewable energy advancements, and navigating power markets for Africa's energy transition. With a focus on accelerating universal access to energy, the conference serves as a platform for stakeholders to strategize and drive sustainable energy development in Africa.

Our vision is to be the world's leading online platform for advancing the use of hydrogen as a critical piece needed to deliver net-zero initiatives and the promise of a clean H2 energy future.
