Welcome to aef digital


The Africa Energy Forum (aef) is the global investment conference & exhibition for Africa’s energy, infrastructure & industrial sectors. This year, we're joining forces with the African Utility Week & POWERGEN Africa plus Oil & Gas Council’s Africa Assembly this October to host a ‘Digital Africa Energy Festival’ - the largest ever energy event for the African continent. 

We’re bringing you a month-long digital platform featuring a vast array of content & networking offerings, delivering critical information at a time when the industry needs it most. 

This ‘Digital Energy Festival’ will provide a gateway to a vast amount of industry content with one point of entry. We’ve designed a flexible programme of engaging panels and networking experiences that fits around your schedule, matching you up with quality leads based on the information you give us. Using easy-to-navigate technology, personalise your agenda, browse an online marketplace of products and connect with relevant contacts using our AI technology.

Watch the aef2.0 broadcasts

EnergyNet delivered aef2.0 this summer – a free-to-attend series of daily digital broadcasts and roundtables with industry leaders from the aef community.

Taking place on the previous dates of the Forum (30th June – 3rd July), aef2.0 was underpinned by the theme: ‘Investment & Impact - Out of Response and Into Recovery.'
