The Africa Energy Indaba is hosted at a crucial time as many African countries experience the impact of poor energy infrastructure, increased demand and a lack of supply. The energy sector is undergoing a significant transition driven by the fast-paced development of disruptive new technologies and global environmental challenges. Over the coming decades this profound energy transformation will fundamentally change the way in which we produce and consume energy.
In achieving Africa’s energy vision for a sustainable energy future, dialogue and key outcomes emanating from this meeting will help inspire change and deliver business growth opportunities for Africa’s energy sector.
