Webinar recording: The question of coal in the energy transition

Financing to mitigate or adapt to looming climate issues is receiving more attention but still lags behind the traditional thermal generation and commonplace operational considerations.

While an increasing number of governments are starting to consider a more sustainable energy transition as central to future climate strategies, this philosophy raises queries around finding the balance between embracing clean energy and exploiting least-cost resources.

In this live webinar, our guests unpack the concern around the role of traditional generation in the energy transition where Africa’s more immediate problem is that of modernisation and expansion.
