Key Pillars

Under the theme of ‘Namibia: Becoming the Sustainable Energy Capital of Africa’ the Namibian delegation will be taking stock of the remarkable strides made in the four key pillars of Namibia’s sustainable energy ambition. From harnessing the power of renewable energy resources to drive the country’s economic growth, to the development of legislative frameworks for monetising Namibia’s position as a natural carbon sink, Namibia endeavors to blaze a trail towards a more sustainable and equitable future for Africa, through the exploitation of:

  • World class oil and gas discoveries
  • Competitive green hydrogen and ammonia
  • World class solar and wind
  • Carbon market framework development

Namibia Investment Roundtable

The Namibia Investment Roundtable will be an in-depth discussion about how Namibia is exploring and exploiting its comparative advantages across four key areas namely recent oil and gas discoveries, green hydrogen value chain,  world-class renewable energy resources and  international carbon markets. During this event, the Namibian government will host a roundtable discussion with speakers from the public and private sector representing the four areas above, highlighting what activities the key stakeholders are implementing which contribute to Namibia’s ambition of becoming the “Sustainable Energy Capital of Africa”.
