This broadcast will be streaming live at 11am BST on the 13th July

Our panel of experts will highlight the key regulations, as well as the investment requirements to opening and operating sites on the continent. From policies to challenges around energy supply and water availability, what are the barriers and drivers that will drive further investment into the continent and how can you overcome them?
