Providing insights, best practices and key learning on how to provide the people of Africa and the ICT industry with access to clean, reliable energy.
This popular virtual event returned for a 2nd edition - which ran as part of Africa Tech Festival 2021 in partnership with Huawei
Of Africa’s 1.2 billion population, more than 50% lack access to a regular, reliable power supply. Over 30 million diesel generators serve as the main power sources to these communities, with an operating cost per site of over 30,000 USD and carbon emissions of 31 tons. With a global focus on the journey to net zero, we believe that these systems can be replaced by innovative solutions and new green policies that will play an increasingly important role in conserving energy and reducing emissions in across all industries.
This year’s Green ICT Forum aimed to provide insight, best practices and key learnings on how all sectors can work together to develop a zero strategy and provide the people of Africa access to clean reliable, energy.
