Energy Access on the African Continent
How do we make sure that energy is more widely accessible in Africa in a world becoming more conscious about climate change?
In Africa, the number of people gaining access to electricity rose from 9 million a year between 2000 and 2013 to 20 million people between 2014 and 2019, outpacing population growth. Despite that fact, in Sub-Saharan Africa, just 46.7% of the population had access to electricity in 2019.
How do we make sure that energy is more widely accessible in Africa in a world becoming more conscious about climate change? How should we balance Africa’s rising energy needs and the world’s increasing need for clean energy generation?
Join Stanford Seed and the Stanford Africa Business Club for a thought provoking discussion with our panel of experts on the topic of Energy Access in Africa.
