ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

As African countries’ economies continue to grow, it is now more important than ever to build more reliable and resilient energy systems to support this growth.

The Energy Africa Conference connects organizations and firms across the globe to the African power sector in line with the Power Africa Initiative. Under the theme, Delivering Clean Solutions to Africa’s Energy Challenges, this not-for-profit, cost-recovery endeavor, provides a unique opportunity for high level multi-disciplinary partners from national governments, private industry, civil society, and academia to share best practices and collaborate on advancing resilient energy systems to meet Africa’s energy demand.

We dialog, collaborate and invest in the work needed to deploy energy and power systems in Africa that support a clean environment by leveraging the synergy between natural gas and renewable energy sources.

We hope this conference inspires you to think bigger and more broadly about energy related opportunities, to expand your horizons, to grow your businesses and to help make the world a better place.
