Conference Overview

The Conference

Future Energy Africa’s core conference themes reflect today’s energy mix in Africa; driven by fossil fuels, contributing over 70 percent of primary energy demand.

Presenting a practical approach to sustainable energy ambitions, and recognising the important role natural gas will play as a preferred transition fuel on journey towards a low-carbon future, Future Energy Africa will bring together traditionally siloed but increasingly connected industries together in one global meeting place.

Future Energy Africa’s three-day conference is the perfect platform for the region’s policy makers; its NOCs and IOCs; national utility companies and IPPs; clean-tech providers; engineering contractors; and financiers to foster a secure, affordable and low-carbon energy mix across Africa.
