The Annual Meeting Place for Africa's Power Sector

7-9 June | Copenhagen, Denmark

Please note: opening government session will start on 6th June

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 2016

Last year AEF was hosted at London's newest landmark, the prestigious Intercontinental O2, attracting 2,100 participants from 80 countries - 32 of those being African. Five major deals and mergers took place onsite, indicating the market position of AEF as a deal-making platform. Such activities also demonstrate the achievements of our partners working on the continent over the last decade, as an increasing number projects reach financial close and begin to light up homes across the continent.
