Opening by: Roberto Vigotti, Secretary General – RES4Africa Foundation
Moderated by: Chris Yelland, EE Business Intelligence
RES4Africa Foundation invites you a virtual event focusing on a Just Energy Transition in South Africa, the largest electricity market in Africa, still heavily dependent on coal and whose energy demand is affected and influenced by frequent supply shortages, rising tariff, and lower energy intensity.
During the virtual event, the study Development of a Reskilling Framework in Support of a Just Energy Transition, developed for RES4Africa Foundation by CSIR and ERM, will be presented. The study aims to assess the number of new jobs that will be created from renewables and the related skills requirements, as well as to draw a reskilling framework plan highlighting the enabling factors to make it actionable. The study also presents the lessons learned from countries where the transition to a low-carbon energy system has already occurred, focusing on the main socio-economic achievements in terms of SDGs and highlighting similarities and advising possible useful actions for the South African case.
