The aim of this three-day conference is to raise public and private awareness of the opportunities and challenges of sustainable energy in Africa by bringing together a number of high-level experts who will discuss energy policy topics from a political, socio-economic, scientific and/or technical point of view. The issues will be discussed amongst policy makers and academic and/or industrial authorities in front of an international audience. One of the outcomes of the conference will be the launch of a “Massive Open Online Course” (MOOC) in a scientific or socio-economic field of common EU-African interest.
The conference is divided into five sessions, three of which are dealing with the following topics: Energy is crucial for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals; Energy mix (hydro, solar, nuclear fission and bioenergy): towards robust, equitable and socially acceptable systems; and Research, innovation and education in support of sustainable energy policies.
