07/10/2021

Non-profit think tank Res4Africa Foundation has appointed technology company Schneider Electric's Middle East and Africa president Caspar Herzberg to its executive committee.

NAIROBI, Kenya, July 10, 2021 (CAPITALFM KENYA) -- Res4Africa has, since 2012, been promoting a green energy transition in Africa and appointed Herzberg for four years to contribute to stakeholder engagement in government and the private sector.

Schneider is a member of Res4Africa and supports its mission to make power generation throughout the region greener and more sustainable.

Res4Africa secretary general Roberto Vigotti says Herzberg will bring to the table his expertise in areas such as smart cities and digital transformation, as well as more than 20 years' worth of experience in the power management and industrial automation systems industries. 

Herzberg (pictured) comments that Schneider believes in how Res4Africa is bringing the public and private sectors together to push for faster change in the green energy space.

"Ultimately, we are all working for the same goal, which is a green, prosperous Africa, and thanks to Res4Africa's leadership, we are going to achieve this sooner rather than later."
