The common goal of African and European partners is to make most out of the opportunities around sustainable energy investments in Africa, as well as to better address challenges.
Infrastructure investments underpin the ability of African countries to fully capitalise on jobs and growth opportunities.
Access to sustainable energy plays a fundamental role in development. The mobilisation of the private sector is crucial for this endeavour.
The High-Level Platform on Sustainable Energy Investments will foster the partnership between European and African businesses.
It aims to attract and boost responsible and sustainable private investments towards sustainable energy, by examining strategic interests that could accelerate impact, especially for sustainable growth and jobs. The platform was launched in November 2018 at the Africa Investment Forum in Johannesburg.
The platform brings together key players in the sustainable energy sector from both European and African public and private sectors, financing institutions, academia and international organisations.
