Energy is the great enabler. An abundant, reliable energy supply makes it possible to plan smart, climate resilient cities, build infrastructure, produce clean water, run sustainable mining and manufacturing operations, and achieve industrial symbiosis. A lack of reliable energy is the greatest obstacle to Africa’s economic progress as a whole. The Energy Seminar examines how sustainable energy supply for Africa can be achieved, from the business case for expanded renewable energy use to funding, investment, technologically advanced energy supply, and the role of platinum fuel cell manufacture and gas. Energy effi ciency incentives and applications for business are examined, together with smart, sustainable energy generation and management solutions for utilities and urban planners.
