Africa Rising

Africa Rising


2pm (GMT) Wednesday 2nd December, 2020

The energy sector in Sub-Saharan Africa faces numerous challenges, but there is also an increasing sense of urgency and opportunity for the development of the industry on the continent.

Fasken is delighted to launch the Africa Rising report, which will provide insights and learnings into how this region is changing and adapting in the face of everything that 2020 has to offer.

Africa Rising was written in association with Energy Voice. The report follows the entire arc of energy in Africa, from upstream exploration through to the delivery of electricity.

Even before the onset of COVID-19, it was clear change was coming. This speed of change has accelerated though and sub-Saharan Africa is diversifying from its focus on exports to a broader-based energy sector, which can also deliver power more widely.

Presenting some of the findings from the report, Fasken and Energy Voice invite you to sign up to the launch event on December 2nd, 2020 at 2pm (GMT).
