Africa Confidential
Africa Confidential
 
Africa Confidential is one of the longest-established specialist publications on Africa, with a considerable reputation for being first with in-depth news and analysis on significant political, economic and security developments across the continent.
 
Our track record owes much to our comprehensive network of local correspondents, and the connections we’ve built up throughout Africa since we started publishing back in 1960.
 
Why 'confidential'?
 
This continent-wide, on-the-ground coverage enables us to identify and monitor upcoming issues long before they are picked up by the general media – and analyse their real significance for our readers.
 
What’s more, all our contributors write for us on the basis of strict anonymity, a principle that was established from the outset in 1960 to ensure writers’ personal safety in the turbulent, early years of post-colonial African independence.  Hence the newsletter’s title.
 
Who reads Africa Confidential?
 
Today, Africa Confidential is read fortnightly by a wide range of institutions and individuals around the world, all of them united in their need for timely, accurate and incisive analysis of contemporary African developments.

About EnergyNet

EnergyNet is a small yet passionate team of professionals who organise a global portfolio of investment meetings, conferences and energy forums focused specifically on the power and industrial sectors across Africa. We are committed to delivering exceptional value by working closely with the key stakeholders at the heart of Africa’s power and infrastructure development. These relationships allow us to deliver relevant and thought-provoking programmes, senior-level speakers and first-rate networking opportunities with the individuals that will influence your business’ development in Africa.

Proven to engage the decision makers and technical directors behind Africa's most exciting economies, Energynet places economic development at the heart of industrial solutions, helping to generate a more stable and viable investment option for your organisation in Africa. 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.

What we do:

Knowledge, passion, detailed research and commercial thinking drive our daily activities so that our content is always ahead of the curve and our speakers are relevant and at the cutting edge of sector developments.  We need to be proud of what we deliver.

Trust and confidence shape our relationships and we appreciate that we often represent major corporations globally and their brands. The responsibility of caring for each of our clients’ brands is something that we take very seriously.

Most importantly, we listen to stakeholders from both the public and private sectors so that we can react better to the changing investment climates around the world.

Energynet delivers local strategies, local content and local insights for global businesses.  Why not join us and see how we can save you time and money? 

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:

Energynet works with governments, energy and infrastructure ministry’s and national utilities across Africa.  We work with our partners to understand their strategic needs and bring together solution providers to support those goals.

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!”
