The EnergyNet Student Engagement Initiative (ESEI)

Giving a Platform to the leaders of tomorrow

The best students | The biggest opportunities

Now in its 6th year, the EnergyNet Student Engagement Initiative (ESEI) has supported nearly 100 African students to learn from global energy companies and explore employment prospects.

ESEI promotes human capital development and job creation across Africa’s power and energy sectors, providing a platform to recognise exceptional African candidates and entrepreneurs. Selected students from top African universities are sponsored to attend the annual Africa Energy Forum, allowing them to witness first-hand the wider impact of the power sector on global economies and industries.

What's New in 2019?

Top class students from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, Senegal and South Africa will attend the 21st Africa Energy Forum (aef) in Lisbon. These countries have been chosen for their wealth of resources, expertise and movement in the sector over the last 18 months.  EnergyNet is committed to shining a light on the path to engagement, aspirations and success for Africa’s next generation of energy leaders.

We’ll be hosting our very own ESEI University Challenge! Join us in the Innovation Theatre on the final day of the conference as 5 countries go head to head in a quick-fire quiz.
