AIX: Energy in Transition 2024

AIX-Energy in Transition

25 April 2024 - 26 April 2024

RSA House, London

Now in its fourth year, Africa Investment Exchange (AIX): Energy in Transition brings together policy makers, financiers, developers, investors and a range of other stakeholders to examine how to unlock the finance and investment necessary to accelerate energy transition across the continent.

The meeting will examine strategies to deliver affordable, sustainable and resilient clean power infrastructure across the continent that meets SDG7 ambitions and helps industrialisation pathways.

Key themes for 2024

  • How are African countries defining their optimal energy mix to meet energy demands in a sustainable manner?
  • What are DFIs doing to support countries through all phases of their energy transition
  • What does the future hold for gas-to-power across the continent?
  • What is needed to deliver green baseload and scale solar and wind power?
  • What role can gas, hydrogen and other fuel types play in reshaping Africa economies and trading relationships?
  • What is needed to help unlock and accelerate private sector investment in renewable energy?
  • Is there sufficient capacity in everything from government ministries to financial markets (local international) to make transition ambitions a reality?
  • What market barriers need to be removed to deliver a robust pipeline of clean energy projects?
