CITAC Energy Transition in Africa Service

CITAC has launched a new service, offering insight and analysis into the key challenge of our time: energy transition.
Energy transition – one of the most critical and complex challenges of our time – is having a unique impact on the African energy sector. The fast-paced energy transition in Africa opens many opportunities for the continent with the lowest per-capita CO2 emissions, the largest carbon sink (the Congo Basin), and exciting technological leapfrogging potential.
CITAC has been specialising in the African energy sector for 25 years and equips its clients with detailed practical knowledge and real solutions. CITAC also has a long history of working with regulators – both country-level and parastatal, African and international – to develop policies that work and that bring real benefits to societies and people.
By introducing this new service, we are providing expert insight to our clients as they navigate the opportunities arising from the African energy transition.
This service will:
- Keep you abreast of the latest developments on the ground
- Equip you with insights from industry experts on trends in the energy transition space in Africa
- Highlight what industry leaders (and your competition) are doing
- Help you track net-zero strategies, and their success or otherwise, on a country- and company level
The adaptation to new energy sources and practices is happening at a faster pace than ever before and Africa is charting its own distinct path. This service will help you stay at the forefront of this new wave of possibilities, along with the financial and policy frameworks required, while also placing energy transition developments in the broader context of the continent’s overall energy mix.
