We challenge the way your business does business in Africa; the information we provide isn't available on the internet and isn't out of a dusty old textbook.

Whilst Energynet is an Africa focused team of researchers and experienced power conference professionals, we are owned and supported globally by the UK’s largest conference and exhibitions organisation, Clarion Events. With vast resources and over 500 people covering defence, energy and utilities in Brazil, Germany, London, New York, San Fransico, South Africa, Turkey, Abu Dhabi and Singapore, Energynet Ltd and Clarion Events are committed to providing global insights and local partnerships.

Please drop Liz an email at Elizabeth.Owens@EnergyNet.co.uk to find out more about what we’re up to.  Don’t worry, Liz is in Marketing so won’t try to sell you anything.

How can Energynet support your P&L and help limit your risk:

We focus on core industry providers including private power developers, investment banks and DFIs, Lawyers, credible consultants, EPCs and immediate power providers to support contract delivery and project success. 

It’s not so much about the ‘global’ economies as the ‘local’ economies:

We understand what it takes to work in challenging environment to generate, transmit and distribute power, and how easily millions of dollars are wasted because of changing politics, out of date industry data or simply cultural nuances.  We will support your business development by connecting you with stakeholders that provide you direction and technical insight and will work directly with you to answer the most pressing questions challenging your business.

By attending one of theEnergynet Forum's or Powering Africa: Series, you'll only meet people relevant to major power and industrial projects, including; national and local government, industrial cluster and free trade zones, major power users such mining, ports and international shipping companies as well as the legal, finance and technical solution providers behind many of Africa's power projects.

Energynet has proved over the last 15yrs that by remaining focused, you can build a network that can find solutions in the most challenging of environments - “It’s all about what you know and who you know!”
