We were delighted to host our live webinar on Africa Day on the topic of the Future of Africa’s Energy Transition. Journalist and BBC presenter, Lerato Mbele moderated the discussion between Ashwin West, Investment Director at African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM), Wandile Mamba, Investment Manager – Infrastructure and Climate Project Finance at the CDC Group, along with members of our Africa energy and infrastructure team, Martin KavanaghBrigette BaillieRebecca Major and Paul Morton. The panel debated whether Africa’s energy “transition” could be better described as a “progression”. While the continent has shown its ability to fast track development in other sectors, the panel discussed the opportunities and challenges that the energy sector faces.
