Attracting investment, looking for energy projects, doing energy is all happening at Africa Energy Indaba

Although access to modern energy in African countries is increasing, the lack of access to energy in the continent is a perennial problem, with around 615 million people without access to energy, and 730 million reliant on biomass for their energy needs. Africa’s population is projected to grow from 1 billion to 1.8 billion. Africa is the continent of opportunity for the serious energy investor. With vast natural energy resources ranging from coal, oil, gas, hydro, solar, wind and geothermal, there is ample choice for the discerning energy entrepreneur. The business opportunity linked to developing Africa’s energy infrastructure and the electrification of the continent will be a key focus of the Africa Energy Indaba.

We supported our partners in the Africa Energy Indaba from 7-9 March 2023 to assess the event for a larger Indian participation for our stakeholders. We saw phenomenal foot traffic, engagements and interest in our products. This was well above our expectation.

Our location, ensured consistent high volume and quality meetings and enquiries. We found synergy between the event offering and Indian expectation for doing business in Africa. With this in mind we hope to create a home for emerging  Indian exporters in the power and Energy sectors respectively across all verticals at the Africa Energy Indaba for the foreseeable future.

We look forward to meaningful participation and cooperation between our Indian supply and African demand side stakeholders. Our thanks goes to Liz Hart  and her team for their hospitality and excellent service.

There are few premier energy events that attend to real energy challenges in Africa. Africa Energy Indaba event (AEI) has rapidly risen to be a leading event in this regards that earned the support of the African union, new partnership for African development (NEPAD) and the world energy council (WEC). This is simply because AEI provides an effective platform for discussions of currents energy challenges in Africa, in an African environment and by African themselves, which results in coming up with realistic solutions not detached from reality. AEI follows an approach which is dynamic in nature when it decides upon its yearly programme . Beside ensuring that there is something for every participants, it ensures that the programme is topical and there is something new every year. In one year it added the PPA, PPP and IPP to its programme, in another year it added debate on nuclear power, in another year it added energy ministerial debate and in 2017 it added a new session on presenting Africa priority renewable energy projects to investors and developers. I found AEI an effective platform for not only networking but also for keeping up to date with real developments in the energy sector in Africa.

It is always well attended by all sectors involved in energy in many African countries so besides being an excellent opportunity to meet with these people, it is also possible to hear their views and perspectives as they are often included in the panel discussions that are presented at the Indaba.
