The Annual Meeting Place for Africa's Power Sector

20th anniversary of the Africa Energy Forum 2018

The Africa Energy Forum (AEF) is the global investment meeting for Africa’s power, energy, infrastructure and industrial sectors.

The Forum's 20th anniversary took place in Mauritius from 19-22 June, bringing together over 1600 delegates for four days of panel discussions and networking functions focused on Africa’s Energy Sector. The event took place in 26 purpose-built structures erected between the Paradis and Dinarobin Beachcomber hotels in Le Morne, Mauritius.

The purpose of the Forum is to bring together senior decision-makers active in Africa's energy sector 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.
