Green Economy focus areas in 2023: Renewable energy, e-mobility, infrastructure & manufacturing

Global leaders and experts share strategic insights on how policy, investment and innovation can be combined to support the development of the industry in Africa.


The 3-day deal-making platform showcases investable African projects in both closed and open deal making environments. Connecting stakeholders to move the sector forward is core to the objective of the Summit.

E-Fest Cape Town

Go Green Africa!

On 25 February 2023 Cape Town hosted the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship Cape Town E-Prix event for the first time in sub-Saharan Africa. 


The global event, and its supporting 10-day E-Fest, served as a celebration of Go Green Africa, a shared mission founded by organizations committed to playing a meaningful role in helping to accelerate Africa’s transition to a “Green Economy” in a just and inclusive way. 

This is an invitation to join Go Green Africa in delivering the first chapter of this transformational story and help us to manifest a lasting legacy that will not only transform South Africa and our continent but also serve as a platform which Partners can leverage to demonstrate their commitment to playing an important role in driving this transition.
