Africa should be allowed to strike a balance between transitioning to clean energy production and using its oil and gas discoveries to develop and industrialise.

This is just one of the arguments brought forward during the Africa Energy Week conference underway in Cape Town, South Africa.

More than 600 million Africans are said to be facing energy insecurity, despite the continent being endowed with natural resources to produce electricity.

The Africa Energy Week therefore seeks to foster dialogue to advance the energy mix sustainably while remaining committed to global calls to reduce global warming.

President Hage Geingob is expected to address the gathering.
