Where the World Connects with the African Energy Industry


Green Energy Africa Summit (4 - 5 October 2022) is the global platform for stimulating deals and transactions across the African Energy Industry. The event brings together governments, national regulators and utility companies, independent power players, investors, financial institutions and service providers. The summit will drive deals and investment into energy projects, provide energy access and solutions for the continent and shape the future of Africa.


What happens at Green Energy Africa Summit?


Green Energy Africa Summit connects ministers and government leaders with the global private sector. In 2021, 34 ministers and government leaders attended to engage in project development negotiations. In 2022 we will welcome 1,000+ senior delegates across two days of pioneering industry-leading insight, delivering deals and transactions across our conference, exhibition, and elite networking platforms.


The Journey of Green Energy Africa Summit 


In 2021, we launched the Green Energy Africa Summit at an exclusive ministerial and VIP symposium officiated by H.E. Suhail Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, United Arab Emirates and in the presence of many high profile figures including Africa Union Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy H.E. Dr. Amani Abou-Zeid and Africa Continental Free Trade Area Secretary General H.E. Wamkele Keabetswe Mene. It included round table talks with 30+ ministers from across Africa and beyond who engaged in project-development negotiations with the global private sector. More than 500 institutions attended the event – collectively accountable for controlling more than $100bn of capital for energy projects.
