Mazars’ energy experts will share their knowledge and expertise on several panel sessions, including:

Dignitary Panel: Africa as a renewable energy power house 

11 November 2021| 11:00-12:15 | Venue: The Avenue

It is increasingly clear that Africa has the potential to lead the world in scaling-up and generating renewable energy. How can this transition on the continent be supported by institutions in other countries and private companies? What are some business and policy strategies that could potentially increase the continent's generation capacity?

Moderator: Taonna Kokera, Associate Director, Infrastructure Finance, Mazars 

Energy Transition Forum – International financing for renewable energy projects on the continent

11 November 2021 | 12:30-13:30 | Venue: The Vault - Nedbank Building

The access to renewable energy in Africa is critical. Specially the high connection costs prevent consumers from connecting to off- and mini-grid. How can financial institutions overcome these hurdles? High risk makes raising financing for renewable energy projects difficult and costly. Which regulatory and legal frameworks for private sector investments are needed to de-risk investment into renewable energy in Africa?

Panelist: Irena Karasamani, Director – Energy & Infrastructure M&A, Mazars
