Emanuela Colombo, Professor from the Department of Energy and Rector’s Delegate to Cooperation and Development at Politecnico di Milano, one of LEAP-RE’s partner, wrote an article that has been published on ESI Africa magazine.

The article analyzes the impact of the COVID-19 emergency on the energy sector in the African continent. It is available online and in the ESI Africa Issue 1-2021.
