Just Energy Transition 

 

Venue: Online 

Date: 28 July 2021

 

Resources for Africa is hosting a Just Energy Transition discussion on 28th July as a virtual discussion, when key stakeholders including coal mining companies, alternative energy providers, government, business organisations and NGOs will come together to debate the main challenges facing the Southern African coal mining industry in achieving a just energy transition while minimizing the social, environmental and economic consequences.

The following crucial questions will be discussed:

  • Can and should African countries start to move away from coal to alternative sources of energy?
  • Who should be driving the just energy transition – government, industry, both? Which other stakeholders need to be involved?
  • What is a reasonable timeframe for the transition to renewable energy sources?
  • What opportunities are there for the coal industry to develop renewable energy and to transfer jobs from their current operations?
  • What is the future energy mix likely to look like in the short to mid-term?
  • And much more...

 

The Just Energy Transition Day is being held alongside the 3rd annual Coal Industry Day as a virtual discussion on Tuesday, 27th July, which will focus on the challenges facing the industry, including: the future of coal given the increasing environmental pressures, the impact of Covid-19, funding for coal projects, the local and export markets and coal producers’ strategies going forward.
