African Energy Development and UK Energy Security
With Africa on the cusp of becoming a more significant energy producing continent, there is growing awareness of the need for African countries to maximise the opportunities arising from changes to global energy markets and ensure their own access to cheap, reliable energy and power generation. However, with African countries collectively contributing significant amounts to the global energy market for oil and in future for gas, their need for cheap reliable energy and power may have important implications for UK energy security.
This workshop will provide an opportunity to explore the complex opportunities and issues facing the region, and their potential implications for UK energy security and policy.
The workshop is being held under the Chatham House Rule.
Attendance is by invitation only.
The workshop is organized by the Africa Programme in association with the Energy Policy Group of Exeter University.
