How to Respond to Energy Transitions in Africa

The world is transitioning to a low-carbon economy. How are African countries responding to this transition? The book, ‘Energy Transitions and the future of the African Energy Sector: Law, Policy and Governance’, aims at addressing the key concerns for African countries with respect to energy transitions. There have been initiatives on the African continent to embrace this transition as evidenced in not only these countries’ commitment to the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change, but also various efforts in deploying renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.
