Why does the global transition vary in shape and form? Is the energy transition only truly happening in the West? Politicians like to point fingers at those who “aren’t doing their bit”. But every country – from China to Kenya – is transforming independently…
In this episode, we speak first to Harsh Vijay Singh
from the World Economic Forum (WEF), who talks about the global transition and how multiple transformations are occurring all around the world. He discusses The Energy Transition Index, an annual report published by WEF that benchmarks 115 countries on the performance of their energy systems.
We then dive deep into China and Sub-Saharan Africa – two places where the energy transition looks very different. We’re joined by world-leading experts on these respective parts of the world: Isabel Hilton OBE
, founder of China Dialogue and Dr Rose Mutiso
, research director at The Energy for Growth Hub. Both touch upon key drivers of the variability of the global transition.
