The Covid virus has transformed the way we do we do business.  In Africa, like in other parts of the world, the virus has not only adversely affected the health of people, but also many business functions such as logistics and project deployment, further aggravating the already creaking energy infrastructure.  Under the theme “Investing in Africa’s Energy Future in the New Normal” the energy Africa conference, now in its 13th year, explores how investors, Engineering and Construction firms and project developers, can successfully deploy energy projects in Africa and learn from those who are already doing it. 

Join us and learn from high-level decision and policy makers how as an investor, project developer, consulting company, engineering company, technology or a business professional, can plug into the many business opportunities in the Energy Sector in Africa. 

​The Energy Africa Conference, has developed a community of project developers, investors, funders, policy makers, service providers and other professionals in the energy space from around the globe and Africa, to form partnerships, identify bankable projects in Africa and collaboratively fund and deploy these projects in line with the Power Africa Initiative and the United Nations Sustainability Goals. 

This two-day conference features keynote presentations, enlightening case studies, expert and practitioner lively interactive conversations and opportunities in a virtual environment.

We hope this conference inspires you to think bigger and more broadly about the lucrative energy related opportunities in Africa, to expand your horizons, to grow your businesses and to help make the world a better place while doing real business. Be part of the solution.
