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.
