An African energy event, by Africans, for Africa!
Africa’s Premier Energy Event
The Africa Energy Indaba receives global recognition as the foremost African energy event for energy professionals from across the globe.
Adopted by the World Energy Council (WEC) as the African regional event of the WEC and presented by the South African National Energy Association (SANEA), the Africa Energy Indaba is supported by the African Union and the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency. As such, the Africa Energy Indaba has achieved the highest level of endorsement and support for an energy conference on the continent.
Bringing Together Africa’s Energy Leaders
The Africa Energy Indaba brings together international and continental experts to share their insights and solutions to Africa’s energy crisis, while simultaneously exploring the vast energy development opportunities on offer in Africa!
Delegates come from across the continent to attend what has become known as the business networking forum of choice for energy industry players on the continent. The conference is the forum for delegates to debate and exchange solutions to Africa's energy challenges, whilst the exhibition component is a significant marketplace for African and international stakeholders looking for and doing business in Africa's energy sector.
World Class Steering Committee
Setting the agenda of Africa’s premier energy event is a process that’s entirely different from usual conference planning. Instead of issuing a call for speakers and conference papers, as many conferences do when setting an event programme, the Africa Energy Indaba steering committee meets throughout the year to plan and discuss the topics that will be debated at the Johannesburg event. Once the topics are decided then the best speakers are sourced specific to the topic and invited. This way, the Africa Energy Indaba offers the best industry experts discussing their respective topics and providing the delegates in attendance with a world-class conference event relating to content and speakers.
The topics for the 2014 event are not merely a repackaging of previous years’ topics, but are cutting edge and exploratory topics that are particularly important to the African context, obtained through annual surveys conducted with the WEC and SANEA. The issues of de-centralised energy supply, skills development in the energy sector, political volatility and realisation of gas potential are all topics that are currently being grappled with by Africa’s energy industry players.
The Africa Energy Indaba 2014 will be held from the 18th – 20th February 2014 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.
