Energy is a key driver for Africa’s economic growth. The business opportunity linked to developing Africa’s energy infrastructure and the electrification of the continent will be a key focus of the 2020 Africa Energy Indaba. For over a decade, the annual Africa Energy Indaba has served as the connection point for investments into Africa’s energy sector catering to opportunities from small renewable energy projects to billion dollar utility tenders.
Representing the World Energy Council regional event for Africa, the Africa Energy Indaba will be hosted in Cape Town, South Africa from 3 – 4 March 2020.
The Africa Energy Indaba attended and represented Africa at the recent World Energy Council Congress, which took place in September in Abu Dhabi. This four day event highlighted the serious business of energy transition and the emerging challenges of managing a successful whole energy system transformation, in context of global uncertainty, climate change impacts and cyber security threats. The Africa Energy Indaba will continue the discussions hosted at the World Energy Council Congress, through the various panels to be hosted in March 2020.
