AOW Investing in African Energy

The global energy sector is in transition and Africa’s role is evolving at pace. The continent’s diverse energy landscape from its hydrocarbon reserves to renewable potential positions it as a critical player in shaping a sustainable energy future.

The coming together of the Green Energy Africa Summit and Africa Oil Week into "AOW: Investing in African Energy" is a step towards addressing the immediate energy needs of the continent while embracing the acceleration of the clean energy transition.

This united event will serve as a vital platform for the international community to come together and work towards fostering a prosperous energy outlook for Africa.

AOW: Investing in African Energy is the only event providing a complete and inclusive view of the energy opportunities – from investment to access – and the event will be structured around 3 key pillars:

  • Responsible exploration and production (oil)
  • Accelerating gas (the transition fuel)
  • Renewables integration (future fuels)
