Filling the void – Africa’s role in European energy security

South Africa

As Western Europe accelerates a structural transition away from Russian energy dependence, Africa will play a salient role in filling this void.

What you will learn:

  • Europe’s diversification away from Russian oil and gas opens the door for untapped and underdeveloped hydrocarbon resources in Africa to plug this gap.
  • Efforts to accelerate the green transition due to Europe’s evident energy insecurity will also see an increase in demand for Africa’s ‘green minerals’.
  • While the development of African assets in the hydrocarbons and renewable energies sectors looks more attractive now than a year ago, governments will still need to safeguard a stable operational environment to attract the long-term investments needed.
