21st June 2016 - 24th June 2016

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 17th year, the Africa Energy Forum has established its reputation as the annual meeting place for Africa’s power executives.

As these growing economies open up for international investment following exciting political and economic developments, Iran, Pakistan, Myanmar and Cuba are each starting a new exciting era in their energy markets that the industry’s big players can’t ignore.
 
Iran is estimated to have foregone $160bn in oil sales in the past three years as exports to Europe collapsed and as Asian countries such as India sought alternative supplies. ‘Iran Country Focus’ will bring decision makers for an exclusive discussion on what the future looks like in the Iran’s energy market as the country prepares to open up after the sanctions.
 
Pakistan faces a significant challenge in revamping its network responsible for the supply of electricity. The ‘Pakistan Country Focus’ will analyse the alternative solutions to the country’s critical energy needs and discuss opportunities for international trade and renewable industry development.
Rich with oil and gas, geothermal, and renewable energy sources, Myanmar’s energy sector has incredible potential that will not only benefit investors, but the Myanmar people as well. ‘Myanmar country Focus’ will look into the ‘new’ government’s plans to foster an investor-friendly business climate and the opportunities in infrastructure and power development.
 
Cuba has what many other developed counties do not – an opportunity to start from scratch and rebuild its energy infrastructure in a smart and efficient manner with 100% renewables. ‘Cuba Country Focus’ will bring the government to update the audience on what energy investment opportunities are being created the re-opening of the country.

EnergyNet Student Engagement Initiative (ESEI)

 

The EnergyNet Student Engagement Initiative (ESEI) was established in 2013 to promote human capital development and job creation across Africa’s power and energy infrastructure sectors.

ESEI focuses on three key principles; Law, Engineering and Finance. The ESEI Leadership Committee together with our partners are constantly seeking top performing students from across the African continent- Africa’s leaders of tomorrow.

EnergyNet is committed to recognising and profiling exceptional African candidates and entrepreneurs, working in collaboration with our Leadership Committee and partners Aggreko and Norton Rose Fulbright to support academically gifted students in Africa.
 
 
How does it work?
 
Participants are encouraged to not only attend our global meetings and forums but also to engage with our delegates, understand what the current trends are in Africa’s burgeoning energy sector and meet some of the key movers and shakers in this arena. We further our commitment by trying to match our students up with suitable employers, usually those who we work with.
 
This year we have partnered with seven of Africa’s top universities across the continent. We have close working relationships with these universities so that each year, we are support the next crop of graduates onto our ESEI programme. For our students from previous years, we constantly engage them to participate in our investment meetings and connect them to job opportunities or internships when we are approached by our partners/delegates.
 
Partnership opportunities
 
ESEI offers key benefits to its supporters including the opportunity to host ESEI workshops, a seat on the Leadership Committee and corporate logo exclusively profiled as an ESEI partner throughout the year.
