In June, the International Energy Agency (IEA) published the Africa Energy Outlook 2022 report. As has happened in the past, the Portuguese Ministry of Environment and Climate Action was responsible for translating this document to Portuguese.
ALER, in partnership with ADENE – Agência para a Energia, as presidency of EnR – European Energy Network, and with DGEG – General Directorate of Energy and Geology, organized an event on December 12th at 3 pm at the Southern hotel Sun in Maputo, to present the report to the Lusophone community in Africa.
The Africa Energy Outlook 2022 presentation session welcomed about 50 participants in Maputo, but it was also accessible to other participants in a virtual format, with the focus on Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP).
The event was attended by a representative of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Mozambique, the Director General of Energy and Geology of Portugal, the Ambassador of Portugal in Mozambique, the President of ÂDENE and the Executive Director of ALER during the opening session.
The presentation of the report was in charge of the Program Manager for Africa of the IEA, after which there was be a debate with comments from actors in the energy sector from Portugal and Mozambique, to which the remaining participants also joined.
Afterwards, it was held an exclusive cocktail for networking with representatives of the Portuguese and Mozambican delegations, partners and sponsors.
