South African Minister of Energy backs Future Energy Africa 2018


H.E. Jeff Radebe, Minister of Energy, South Africa to inaugurate Future Energy Africa 2018 Proceedings
Keynote address to focus on South Africas Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy by 2030

6 June 2018, Cape Town - Sub-Saharan Africa, rich in oil and natural resources, has entered a dynamic period of exploration, development and production. The continent holds a strategic position offering both tremendous challenges and a major opportunity for a sustainable economic future. 

With more than 620 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa without access to reliable energy, Africa faces an enormous challenge that requires a firm commitment to the accelerated use of legacy fuels, modern technology, alternative energy sources and developing energy infrastructure.

H.E. Jeff Radebe, Minister of Energy, South Africa will be setting out South Africas plans to develop their resources in his Keynote Speech, South Africas Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy by 2030: Key Challenges and Developments, at Future Energy Africa, 1-3 October, Cape Town, South Africa.

Mr Radebe said, Energy is at the core of two very important issues in Africa: ensuring a steady, reliable and sustainable supply for all people in all settings and facilitating and extending the economic growth that creates opportunities and raised hopes across the continent.

South Africa aspires to develop an energy hub for gas cooperation across the value chain. Several initiatives and programmes are expected to be launched to expand oil and gas production and with offshore exploration and onshore shale gas exploration likely to prove successful, South Africa will have a localised supply of oil and gas to enable and promote the diversification of the country's energy mix.

South Africa has a history of developing unconventional energy resources in its bid for greater self-sufficiency, and the country has shown its ability and determination to invent and employ technology to diversify its fuel mix, said Radebe. African countries have to harness their vast energy resources. Legacy energy sources along with the future development of new technologies will help promote inclusive economic and social development.

Christopher Hudson, President of the Global Energy divisionof dmg events commented, Meeting the growing energy demand of their population and ensuring universal access to modern energy services are the principal goals of African countries

Africas growing population and economic progress has sent energy demand soaring. This calls for a rapid increase in supply on the continent, he said. Future Energy Africa 2018, provides a dedicated forum for the international oil, gas and future energy industry to meet Africas leaders to debate the issues directly affecting the continent.

Future Energy Africa 2018,, which includes a dedicated exhibition, is expected to attract over 4,000 visitors, 500 delegates, 50 ministers and government attendees, 250 exhibiting companies, and 100 speakers from over 50 countries.
