The Africa Energy Indaba Conference will be hosted from 3 to 4 March 2020 in South Africa’s Mother City. The Cape Town Convention Centre will play host to the prestigious event that attracts thousands of visitors every year. The energy conference plays an integral part in the development and direction of the African continent’s energy sector and policy governing activities in the sector.
Important issues relevant to energy production and supply on the continent are investigated, analysed and discussed at the key event. With it being the premier event of its kind and focus in Africa, the conference and exhibition bring together top influencers, buyers, and suppliers in the industry.
The event belongs to the World Energy Council (WEC) and is a regional event of the WEC, in which close cooperation with the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency and the South African National Energy Association take place, in addition to the partnerships with key trade associations with the likes of SAOGA and SAEEC.
Attendees from many countries around the globe attend to discuss and seek solutions for energy supply to the African continent. Role players include financing houses, investors, industry leaders, government representatives, developers, manufacturers, and energy clients.
With sustainable energy supply being the focus for industries today, it is also a key discussion point at the conference. Solutions are sought for ongoing sustainable energy supply to reduce environmental impact and improve the wellbeing of people on the continent.
Improved energy supply is essential for economic growth, better healthcare and improvements in education on the African continent. With it being the 12th Africa Energy Indaba, the event already has a substantial media following as well.
