Africa: A Multitude of Opportunities

The political and economic climate in Africa has improved over the past two decades, thereby presenting the continent as a viable investment decision for international stakeholders. Having an abundance of natural resources for power generation (Africa receives over two and a half times what, Germany, a world leader in solar renewables, receives), an increased interest in low-carbon technologies, battery storage, distributed generation solutions and integrated grids, the region’s energy realm is undergoing a positive transition, simultaneously creating a multitude of opportunities for African nations and global investors to capitalise on.

The Africa Energy Indaba is the continent’s definitive energy conference, providing an annual agenda that influences energy policy for Africa. The prestigious event serves as the ideal platform for achieving Africa’s energy vision for a sustainable energy future and keeping abreast of global energy competitors in this dynamic energy landscape.

Innovation; shifts in policy and consumer demands; and the reducing costs of new technology are driving rapid change within local, national and global energy systems. Renewables, distributed energy and smart grids demand new capabilities, new business models and legislative frameworks. The conference will uncover the role of digitalisation in creating modern and affordable energy sources without inhibiting development; and to consider climate change with reference to Africa’s rapid development.
