The Annual Meeting Place for Africa's Power Sector

The Africa Energy Forum (AEF) is the global investment meeting for Africa’s power, energy, infrastructure and industrial sectors. Nineteen years in the running, AEF brings together senior-level representatives from governments, utilities, regulators, power developers, financial institutions, technology providers, consultants, law firms and large energy consumers to form partnerships, identify opportunities and collectively move the industry forward. AEF has a loyal following of credible players working in the power space, and a track record of delivering a valuable networking experience.

Africa Energy Forum 2017

This year's AEF was hosted at the Bella Center in Copenhagen from 7-9 June, attracting 2,000 participants from 77 countries - 33 of those being African. 11 African students attended the Forum, joining the sessions and networking breaks as part of EnergyNet's Student Engagement Inititative.

Alongside the private exhibition of solution providers, the Off the Grid Village exhibition area evolved this year  to include even more companies supplying off-grid technologies and finance solutions. New for 2017, the Innovation Theatre hosted inspiring talks and presentations on energy access as well as visual art, scultpure and natural navigation. A number of deals took place at this year’s Forum including announcements from USTDA, World Bank and InfraCo Africa.
