Theme: The business of energy – AFRICA BECKONS

Renewable Energy in Africa Is Set to Surge by 2040

Renewable energy will make up almost half of sub-Saharan Africa’s power generation growth by 2040, according to a report by the International Energy Agency.

The report predicts that, over the next 26 years, sub-Saharan Africa will start to unlock its “vast renewable energy resources” and that solar energy will lead the growth in renewables in the region. According to the report, just 10 percent of sub-Saharan’s hydropower potential is currently being exploited. In addition, much of Africa has “excellent solar” potential, and coastal regions hold potential for wind energy.

 The 2023 Africa Energy Indaba will feature RENEWABLE ENERGY as a major focus area of the event.  Renewable Energy will cover solar, wind and a large emphasis on micro-grid technologies, given the demand in Africa.

We invite exhibitors who represent the following industry categories to exhibit:

  • Solar PV Technologies:  Photovoltaic Cells & Modules / PV Inverters /  PV Components (Cables, Connectors, Junction Boxes) / PV Tracking Systems / PV Mounting Systems / PV Plus Storage
  • PV Applications: Utility Scale / PV Systems / Rooftop Solar / PV Systems / Building Integrated PV (BIPV)
  • Solar Development & Advisory Services
  • Mini-grid Technologies: Solar solutions / Mini-grid connectivity / Battery solutions
  • Wind Technologies:  Turbine manufacturers / consulting and advisory services / EPC Contractors

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.

STEAG EOH energy services chose the Africa Energy Indaba as the ideal platform at which to announce their launch into the south African market. In addition to being the platinum sponsor for the event, AEI and Siyenza assisted in making this a hugely successful event by not only providing the right forum, profile and visibility with high profile dignitaries & industry stakeholders, but also by making the complete process smooth and focussed with professional support, organisation and communications. STEAG EOH energy services would like to extend their appreciation and thanks to the organisers for a memorable event.

Africa Energy Indaba is growing successfully year over year, in terms of participants, contents and high-level expertise. Flagging together sustainable energy solutions by africans for Africa is the most rewarding engagement for African leaders to be part of this annual forum.

Dave Wright

The Africa Energy Indaba is the must attend energy event for everyone interested in energy matters across 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.
