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.
The much awaited Africa Energy Indaba, held in collaboration with strategic partners, the World Energy Council, NEPAD Agency and SANEA once again proved to be a sectoral sensation. The event is the largest and most influential energy event in Sub-Saharan Africa covering all aspects of the nation’s energy agenda.
For too many generations Africa has languished with energy systems that provide energy that is neither accessible nor affordable to the majority of its citizens.The focus has been on Transformation of the sector to provide light, heat and clean cooking to the impoverished.The technology revolution that is currently sweeping the globe provides an opportunity for Africa, unburdened with legacy infrastructure, to Transition directly to modern energy solutions.
The much-anticipated Africa Energy Indaba Conference held in collaboration with strategic partners, the World Energy Council, NEPAD Agency and SANEA was yet again, a raging success. The conference outcomes proved highly successful in addressing key issues impacting the African energy sector while devising solutions to best mitigate these concerns.
