Straight from an Africa COP: The potential of renewables and the rise of the JETP

The partnership’s penultimate podcast looks at the just energy transition through the lens of Africa including the position on gas in the energy transition, the unexploited wind potential in the region and the rise of the JETP. GWEC’s Reshmi Ladwa is joined by Wangari Muchiri, Director of Africa Wind Power also at GWEC to discuss their lived Africa COP experience. The conversation addresses the narrative associated with gas and the deployment of renewables in Africa. As the continent develops and industrialises we discuss the positive impacts that the acceleration of renewables can have on nations. Ensuring a just energy transition in the form of national frameworks can further lessen the burden faced by the most impacted stakeholders in the energy transition.
