About the Conference


The Africa Energy Indaba is a conference that will take place from the 17th to 18th of February 2015 in South Africa. The aim of the conference is to unlock Africa’s potential, which is at the moment mainly limited by a weak energy infrastructure system. The event will put together different interest groups to seek solutions to enable adequate energy generation in Africa. In words of Africa Energy Indaba Conference Chairman:

Africa is a continent with huge, as yet unrealised, potential. It is endowed with a diversity of natural resources, a generally hospitable climate and enough land for all its people. (…) Energy is the driver for social and economic development enabling education, healthcare, economic and commercial enterprise and social well being.” Brian Statham.
