The Africa Energy Indaba, the continent’s premier energy conference and exhibition, dedicated to advancing Africa’s renewable energy development, is set to convene industry leaders, policymakers, innovators, and stakeholders from across the continent and beyond.
This flagship event underscores Africa’s commitment to harnessing its abundant renewable energy resources to power a sustainable and prosperous future.
Given the recent outcomes of the COP28 Summit hosted in Dubai at the end of 2023, a historic result of the event was the adoption of a fossil fuel phase-out agreement, which commits the parties to transition away from fossil fuels in energy systems, in a just, orderly and equitable manner, to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
Adding to this outcome, the global aim will be to triple renewable energy development and implementation by 2030. This shift to renewables, both across the world and in Africa, will receive significant attention at the Africa Energy Indaba to be hosted from 5 – 7 March 2024 in Cape Town, South Africa.
Key Highlights of the Africa Energy Indaba include:
Renewable Energy Showcase: The event will showcase renewable energy technologies, solutions, and innovations driving Africa’s energy transition. Exhibitors, including leading renewable energy companies, start-ups, and research institutions, will present ground-breaking technologies and initiatives shaping Africa’s renewable energy landscape.
A major focus will be on solar and wind technologies, driving change across Africa, through immediate solutions that can be implemented affordably.
Policy & Regulation Dialogue: High-level policymakers, regulators, and government officials will engage in critical discussions on developing supportive policy frameworks, regulatory mechanisms, and incentives to accelerate renewable energy deployment across Africa.
Participants will explore best practices, challenges, and opportunities for fostering a conducive environment for renewable energy investment and development.
Renewables Indaba: The Africa Energy Indaba will host an exclusive Renewables Indaba, connecting project developers, financiers, investors, and stakeholders. Participants will explore investment opportunities, financing mechanisms, and partnership models to mobilise capital, accelerate project development, and drive renewable energy growth across the continent.
Capacity Building & Skills Development: The event will feature capacity-building workshops, training sessions, and skills development programs aimed at empowering local communities, professionals, and stakeholders. Participants will gain insights into renewable energy technologies, project development, financing, and best practices, fostering skills development, knowledge transfer, and capacity building across Africa.
Networking & Collaboration Opportunities: The Africa Energy Indaba and all its affiliated Side Events, will provide unparalleled networking and collaboration opportunities for participants to connect, engage, and collaborate with industry peers, policymakers, investors, and stakeholders.
This will be achieved through the unique B2B Connect Programme available to participating exhibitors, delegates and sponsors. Participants will forge strategic partnerships, alliances, and collaborations to drive innovation, investment, and sustainable development across Africa’s renewable energy sector.
The Africa Energy Indaba reaffirms Africa’s commitment to accelerating the transition to renewable energy, fostering sustainable development, and powering a prosperous future for all Africans. By convening key stakeholders, facilitating dialogues, and showcasing innovative renewable energy technologies and solutions, the event aims to catalyse action, drive investment, and shape Africa’s renewable energy landscape for generations to come.
