Africa Energy Leadership Summit 2024

The Africa Energy Leadership Summit is a truly pan-African event for senior decision makers in African who are engaged in closing the continent’s energy and power infrastructure gap.

Held under the theme ‘Investments, integration, infrastructure, and governance to fuel the energy transition’, the Summit aims to create partnerships and opportunities that will accelerate targeted interventions and achieve the objectives and pillars outlined in the Africa Power Vision to Action Initiative, and by extension the Program for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) for a just, fair, and equitable energy transition. Delegates will enjoy the city of Kigali through curated technical and social tours and engage in interactive knowledge-sharing experiences with like-minded peers throughout the three days of the programme, with networking receptions, power lunches, interactive deep dive sessions and roundtables.

Some of our key topics include

  • Energy Security in Africa
  • How would you design a carbon market mechanism that helps to reduce emissions while encouraging investment into your country's energy system
  • The role of innovation in driving forward last-mile rural electrification with decentralized renewable energy (DRE)
  • The roadmap to an integrated continental electricity market – Green Finance, PPP and the Energy Transition
  • Gas-to-power infrastructure as an enabler of the energy transition
  • Transforming energy consumption – building, industrial, agriculture and transport sectors
