The 5th Industrial Revolution

The impact of Covid-19 has magnified the need to be able to deliver energy in times of crises. Under the theme ‘The 5th Industrial Revolution,’ the 2020 Forum looked ahead to the digitisation of the energy sector and how to harness technology so humanity can recover better.

This theme explored the relationship between energy, technology, purpose and inclusivity, seeking to understand how technological innovation can work hand in hand with humans to enhance energy security, sustainability and energy access in a post-covid future.

With a vast wave of investment set to sweep Africa for energy, infrastructure and digitalisation, the Africa Energy Forum aimed to help towards harnessing this potential so the continent doesn’t just recover - it recovers better.
