The fifth AEEP Energy Talks on 30 June 2021, 14.00 – 15.45 (CEST) will bring together African and European experts to debate mobilising private investment in renewable energy to advance a sustainable energy transition in Africa.
A new AEEP Energy Talks Spotlight explores the benefits green buildings offer at the nexus of health, climate and a green recovery. Experiences from the health sector show that green buildings can have immediate benefits for patients’ well-being, staff satisfaction and cost savings. In addition, green buildings can strengthen local employment and economy to support the economic recovery after COVID-19.
The Africa-Europe High-level Platform for Sustainable Energy Investments
The High-Level Platform for Sustainable Energy Investments (SEI Platform) was launched in 2018 at the African Investment Forum in Johannesburg, serving as of the Task Force Energy under the Africa-Europe Alliance for Sustainable Investments and Jobs. It addresses the call from the AU-EU Summit of 2017 for greater efforts to establish the right business framework to attract responsible and sustainable investments and to accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
