The upcoming African Energy Week (AEW) will feature a Just Energy Transition (JET) Summit aiming to address the challenges and opportunities in Africa's energy landscape. The Summit will focus on various key aspects to propel the continent towards a sustainable energy future. Discussions will prioritize Africa's gas market potential as a transition fuel, emphasizing financing small-scale LNG and establishing integrated LPG value chains. Additionally, the role of Africa's coal industry in the transition will be highlighted, with a focus on clean coal technologies and decarbonization strategies. The Summit will also showcase the growing green hydrogen industry in Africa, particularly projects like Namibia's Tsau/Khaeb project, attracting global investments for renewable energy infrastructure. Furthermore, the Summit will delve into the intersection of social justice, environmental sustainability, and economic policies, stressing the importance of local workforce development and female empowerment for a just transition. By promoting gas development, exploring clean coal technologies, advancing green hydrogen projects, and supporting local capacity building, the Summit aims to pave the way for a successful and inclusive energy transition in Africa, fostering economic prosperity and social equity.

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.
