Africa’s combined economies are predicted to grow at 7% over the next two decades. This is faster than China. However, the significant economic growth rates evident in many African countries are unsustainable without massive energy investments. The opportunities and challenges provide an exciting future for those engaged in Africa’s power market and AEF 2013 provides all key stakeholders an opportunity to discuss how they can work together to close the current power gap and meet future electricity demands.
Now in its 16th year, the Africa Energy Forum has established its reputation as the annual meeting place for Africa’s power executives.
