Lack of access to energy is one of Sub-Saharan Africa’s (SSA) most dramatic socio-economic challenges. Solving this issue is a fundamental prerequisite to unleashing the economic potential of the region.

With this event, Bruegel seeks to discuss Europe’s current and prospective contribution in the area.
