The just energy transition in Africa

Category : Power Shift in the News | tags: Spotify

This podcast features global discussions aimed at averting climate change which have gained prominence, with world leaders seeking to avoid its catastrophic effects.

To realize this goal and in line with the Paris Agreement 2015 and development goals, calls for phasing out fossil fuels and adopting renewable energy are central to this discourse. There are concerns about the economic impacts that phasing out fossil fuels would have on African economies.

...“Africa's energy is mostly for export. The current energy system benefits multinationals and a few African elites. We need a system change to one that is development-oriented, people-centred and sustainable," says Amos Wemanya, Power Shift Africa Senior Advisor, Renewable Energy and Just Transitions.
