Africa ready to fully capitalise on clean energy together with the AfDB

In November 2021, stakeholders from around the world gathered in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for the DRC Business Forum to discuss moving Africa up the ladder in the battery, electric vehicle and renewable energy value chain and market. This event affirmed the continent’s ambition to harness its green energy potential and totally eliminate greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The African Development Bank was one of the co-hosts of the DRC Forum, as a sign of the Bank’s commitment to supporting Africa’s energy transition.
