Conduit Conversations at COP26: Jackie Kimeu

How achievable is the goal of universal access to affordable and clean energy for all by 2030? And can this be achieved in Africa whilst transitioning from fossil fuels to decentralised renewable sources of energy?

Jackie Kimeu is the International Coordinator at ACCESS Coalition. They advocate for people living in poverty to have access to safe, reliable, and affordable energy. Jackie speaks to Paul van Zyl about the Coalition’s regional approach to capacity building, the challenges of storing surpluses of renewable energy, and of the large-scale behavioural change campaigns needed to shift mindsets.
