Presentation Topics for the Africa Energy Investment Summit

Energy Infrastructure
Infrastructure has played a significant role in Africa’s recent economic turnaround, and will need to play an even greater role if the continent’s development targets are to be reached.
Scaling Up
Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program in Sub Saharan Africa
institutions and governance
especially related to the development of hydrocarbon resources
Financial support and investment
for energy projects & energy access initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa
Key Trends
Despite Africa being the “new frontier” in oil and gas resources, much of the population still has little to no access to energy and electricity.
Investing
Exploring different paths that could reduce carbon emissions or save on capital spending for African countries.
Opportunities
Energy use and development varies widely across the continent, with some African countries exporting energy to neighbours or the global market while others lack even basic infrastructures, or systems to acquire energy by.
Small Hydro
African government should consider analysing the policy and regulatory framework conditions under which small hydropower can be developed in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Bridging the energy gap
Sub-Saharan Africa is seen as a new frontier for investment and expansion and the economic growth rates have shown immense potential during the last decade. However, continued development is only possible when the power sector is in line with national development plans – and while the continent is blessed with power resources, the infrastructure and utilisation is low, which is holding the continent back.
