Faced with rapid urbanisation, growing population and increased electricity demand, African countries must radically transform their energy systems to address challenges faced by utilities. Power utilities in Africa are in a vicious cycle of financial deficit and exhibit poor technical performance, with the consequence of an insufficient investment in electricity supply infrastructure, poor system reliability and low access rates.

What are the priority areas for Africa in preparation to meet the climate and development goals? How can mini-grids and regional power pools help address Africa’s energy access needs and what is the role of natural gas in Africa’s energy mix?

FSR faculty members Jean-Michel Glachant, Christine Juta and Elias Zigah will discuss these issues with Ignacio Pérez Arriaga.
