Our upcoming events in 2016/17

Building on the momentum from this year’s Africa Energy Forum, the most established investment-level conference for Africa’s power sector, (www.Africa-energy-forum.com), the Africa Energy Forum: Off the Grid will focus on project opportunities for mini and off grid technology providers and developers. The Summit will bring together ministries of energy, rural electrification agencies, philanthropic business foundations, banks, regulatory bodies, multilateral organisations and off grid businesses to discuss topical issues concerning rolling out off-grid projects across Africa.
 

Growing Economies: Project Finance Forum

This year, the meeting formerly known as the hugely successful Powering Africa: Finance Options will evolve into a high level dialogue focusing on the opportunities to finance energy & infrastructure projects across some of the world’s most exciting emerging markets. Hosted in Dubai from 23-24 January 2017, the meeting will bring together heads of utilities and project developers from across Southern and East Africa, Pakistan and India to present live energy and infrastructure projects seeking partners and investors. This meeting forms part of EnergyNet’s Growing Economies’ portfolio, which takes a closer look at the rapidly developing opportunities for project developers in new energy markets across the globe.

Regional Energy Co-operation Summit

The Regional Energy Cooperation Summit will provide a platform for investor insights on the potential for regional collaboration within West Africa’s power sector. The agenda will focus on the country's electricity landscape following the division of the energy and power ministries, the critical issues facing the government and investors, and the future project pipeline which is rapidly growing under the leadership of the Minister for Power. Energy, infrastructure and finance will form the cornerstones of the discussions. Cross-border cooperation in West Africa is crucial to develop mechanisms that facilitate trade and power exchange among States. Sessions will address cross-border co-operation and regional integration, unlocking West Africa’s investments in energy and infrastructure to support industrialisation. 
 
This meeting has the full support of the Ministry of Power of the Republic of Ghana, GRIDCo, Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), and the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) as well as the West African Power Pool (WAPP) and ECOWAS Regional Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERERA).

Now in its 3rd year, the Powering Africa: Summit is an investment conference to showcase power, trade and infrastructure opportunities across the African continent, engaging principle decision makers from the American and African public and private sectors to explore how project bankability can be increased. Obama’s Power Africa initiative helped map the way for project investment, giving a platform to global investment funds and the role they can play in driving forward the development of Africa’s power sector. The Summit aims to connect governments, investors and power developers from the USA and Africa to stimulate partnerships and drive forward project development.

AEF has a loyal following of credible players working in the power space, and a track record of delivering a valuable networking experience.

The 19th Annual Africa Energy Forum (AEF) will take place from 7-9 June in Copenhagen, Denmark to capitalise on the investment potential of Scandinavian countries into Africa. As Denmark leads the way with its green energy initiatives and blending of public and private finance, Copenhagen is the perfect setting to host the Forum and welcome our international delegates.
