Africa Infrastructure & Power Forum
Where Deals are Made Between Chinese Investors & African Developers


The rapid growth in Chinese-African trade is revolutionising development in Africa, stimulating crucial upgrades of the continent’s infrastructure and power sector and ushering a new era of prosperity. It is with this world-transforming development in mind that EnergyNet Ltd is excited to announce the 4th annual Africa Power and Infrastructure Forum, to be held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel from the 15th – 16th October, 2015 in Beijing, China.

This pivotal event is where real, practical change happens - each year major investment deals are closed, and these in turn have shaped the future of Africa’s infrastructure and power development. This year’s forum will feature the official announcements of brand new, large-scale infrastructure and power projects with lucrative opportunities for foreign investors. This year we welcome back our partners CADFund and The China Electricity Council, in addition to hearing from a number of key figures within the investment discussion, including several African Ministers of Energy and Infrastructure, heads of utilities, power developers and financiers.

The meeting will be underpinned by 4 major infrastructure and power projects currently shaping Africa’s energy sector.

  • The East to West Land Bridge including a deep-water port in Lamu, Kenya
  • East African Standard Gauge Railway
  • Dry port development in Gabon and the DRC
  • PPP power projects in Kenya and many more
  • Each of these projects requires large scale investment and we shall be highlighting at AIPF the opportunities available across Africa.

Why Sponsor AIPF? 为什么赞助非洲基础设施&能源论坛?

The Africa Infrastructure & Power Forum 2015 offers sponsors a unique environment in which to develop new business and increase brand visibility amongst the key stakeholders in both Africa’s and Asia’s power and infrastructure sectors. The Forum will serve as an effective trading post between Asian investors and African Energy Ministers & Utility companies so your company will have an opportunity to deliver key messages regarding your products and services to two sets of potential clients. In short, we aim to deliver real value.


We know that sponsors want to secure a return on their investment, and we have an effective structure in place to ensure they meet with the right people, speak in the relevant sessions, and place their logo in the most prominent positions to build vital brand equity.

EnergyNet works closely with all of our sponsors and importantly recognises that “off the shelf” packages do not always meet the objectives of the client. Our sponsorship team is happy to construct a tailored package which reflects the specific aims of the client and which matches their budget and resources.
