Why Africa Energy Expo?

Launching a new era of energy in Africa, Africa Energy Expo is a first-of-its-kind true pan-African event aimed at promoting sustainable, innovative energy sources and driving the African energy transition.

The event brings together government officials, utilities, regulators, EPC Contractors, power pools, investors and who's who of the energy sector, to discuss opportunities and solutions to bridge the gap in the African energy landscape. The programme aims to create partnerships and opportunities to connect investors, technology providers, project developers, as well as other innovators in the sector.  From solar power to oil and gas, from facilities management to smart metering, Africa Energy brings it all together in one place in Rwanda, the heart of Africa.  

An all-things-under-one-roof approach

The Expo will encourage stakeholders in African countries to collaborate, connect, network, and facilitate commercial contacts in order to build a more affordable sustainable energy future through a combination of solutions. It will also feature an intriguing Leadership Forum with panel discussions, keynotes, and networking opportunities, as well as a platform for learning about the most recent technological developments.
