In Africa, conversations around renewable energy need to move beyond those of basic energy access, climate mitigation and adaptation. While these are important, the uptake of renewables also needs to be discussed in the context of economic development and innovation; supporting broader societal development; and bolstering the extraordinary potential of the continent.
But to succeed in securing the energy necessary for Africa’s development, we need to discuss candidly what renewable energy means for Africa.
November 10 marks the first event in the new RENdez-vous Africa: Dialogue Series. Titled “What do Renewables Mean for Africa?”, the first event will bring together African players from both within and outside of the renewable sectors to exchange on this question. The event aims to start the process of identifying common interests and ways to broaden the energy discussion to non-energy sectors.
The event will include two brief commentaries by Ali Zerouali (Director Of Cooperation & International Development at Masen) and Joel Nana (Senior Project Coordinator at Sustainable Energy Africa).

What is a RENdez-vous?
REN21 hosts these events to inspire and to offer opportunities to learn and share across sectors. While each event is unique, one thing remains consistent: at every RENdez-vous there is time to meet and network with people from the greater renewables community, inclusive of many different sectors.
