EEP Africa Rising Energy Leaders Award Recipients 2020

EEP Africa is pleased to announce our Rising Energy Leaders for 2020!


The Rising Energy Leader award was created to shine a spotlight on young professionals who are leading the clean energy transition in Africa. Nominees were asked to demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing clean energy solutions, demonstrated professional growth or achievement in the sector, and ambitious goals for the future.
