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.

Join us in Dubai from 8-11 June 2015 for the 17th Annual Africa Energy Forum – the official gathering of African power industry stakeholders.
 
The Africa Energy Forum (AEF) is the only international Forum focussed on power generation for Africa with attendance restricted to stakeholders (investors, consultants, developers, ministries, utilities, regulators etc.) from the power sector. AEF comes to the UAE for the first time to capture the massive potential of Middle Eastern investment, and to learn from a region that has successfully built its gas based economy into a booming global empire.
 
With massive demand for power in Africa and international investors keen to fund power projects, this is the most established African power event that African governments and private sector attend year on year. As a result AEF has become the place to do business and meet new and prospective clients. Held in a different city each year, African Ministries, utilities and regulators return from across the continent meet and do business with prospective investors and power developers from Europe, Asia, Middle East, North America and South America.
 
The 17th Annual Africa Energy Forum  will take place on 8-11 June 2015 at The J.W Marriot Marquis in Dubai and is set to welcome over 1200 industry stakeholders including; government representatives, utilities, financial investors, power technology providers, power developers, EPC contractors and more. Over $25bn of investment capital was represented at AEF 2014 in Istanbul and 2015 looks to be bigger.
