Huawei and Informa Tech Hosted the Africa Green ICT 2022 Webinar to Light Up a Sustainable Africa
As the world works towards carbon neutrality, many African countries have accelerated the energy transition by integrating renewable energy targets into their national energy plans and adopting innovative energy solutions. ICT innovation plays a key role in green growth by Africa.
As a leader in ICT innovations, Huawei focuses on three areas to drive green development: building green ICT infrastructure, increasing the proportion of renewable energy in power generation, and building industries. green.
Alvin GongPresident of Huawei Northern African Digital Power Business, said in his speech, “In the ICT industry, Huawei has had successful experiences in North Africa during the last years. We have built systematic 3-level solutions for better energy efficiency, including green site, green network and green operation. These solutions contribute to achieving the goals of green ICT.”
Thecla Mbongue, senior research analyst at Omdia, delved into green ICT development from an African perspective. “In Africa, limited access to electricity makes the use of green ICTs a necessity rather than just an initiative to achieve zero carbon emissions,” she said during the webinar.
Atef Marzouk, senior energy consultant at Huawei Northern Africa Digital Power Business, shared his thoughts on how green energy policies are supporting the continent’s green transition. He pointed out that renewable energy policies are the catalyst for accelerated market transformation. “Fiscal and financial policies are essential to increase the deployment of renewable energy (RE). It is important that the government sets its target and develops RE by reducing taxes and the like,” Atef said.
Abdullah Al-Shammas, CEO of IHS Cameroon, analyzed the challenges faced by the ICT industry in improving energy efficiency and shared information on industry trends and good practices in green development for tower companies. He stressed that governments, carriers, service providers and tower companies should work together to promote the sustainable development of the telecommunications industry and bring good to the public.
Seif SedkyCEO of Europe & MEA of Green Power Technologie, said: “With accelerating global warming, it is essential to act quickly to achieve carbon neutrality. Green Power Technology’s mission is to leverage its expertise and knowledge of the African market to develop a powerful ecosystem of partners who can effectively deploy, operate and manage Huawei’s smart and powerful PV solutions.”
Together with customers and partners, Huawei will continuously innovate, use green ICT to drive green development, use bits to manage watts, and drive green growth in Africa.
