The 10th annual Africa Energy Indaba is less than a week away and African and global energy players are preparing to unlock energy and business opportunities across the continent through the event.
The Indaba is being hosted at a crucial time as many African countries experience the impact of poor energy infrastructure, increased demand and a lack of supply.
According to the organisers the energy sector is undergoing a significant transition driven by the fast-paced development of disruptive new technologies and global environmental challenges.
“Over the coming decades this profound energy transformation will fundamentally change the way in which we produce and consume energy,” they said.
Distinguished energy luminaries confirmed to address the 2018 Africa Energy Indaba include Dr Elham Mahmoud Ahmed Ibrahim, Vice Chair for Africa of the World Energy Council, Amadou Hott, Vice- President of Energy, African Development Bank Group and Dr Ibrahim Mayaki, Chief Executive Officer, NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency to name a few.
“In achieving Africa’s energy vision for a sustainable energy future, dialogue and key outcomes emanating from this meeting will help inspire change and deliver business growth opportunities for Africa’s energy sector,” the organisers conclude.
The Africa Energy Indaba is taking place from 20-21 February 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
