Informa Markets, a leading global exhibition and conference organiser, announced the launch of the first-ever Africa Energy Expo, set to take place in Kigali, Rwanda, from 04 to 06 November 2024. The same company is in charge of organizing the Middle East Energy, which was cancelled this year for the adverse weather conditions.

Endorsed by the Rwanda Ministry of Infrastructure and supported by the Rwanda Convention Bureau, the Africa Energy Expo, and the Africa Energy Leadership Summit are pivotal gatherings of African decision-makers tackling the continent’s energy infrastructure gap.

Launching a new era in Africa

Abundant natural resources and environmental advantages have long indicated Africa’s potential as a global leader in energy expansion. Now, opportunities for power-generating capacity and renewables are paving a viable course towards widespread energy accessibility for African nations. As domestic and international stakeholders recognize unique possibilities beyond the challenges, investment opportunities are gaining pace.

The Expo is the central meeting place for Pan-African public and private networks and international suppliers and investors to meet, trade and set progress in motion.

Supporting COP 27 Africa climate pledges and Africa Power Vision, a continent-wide movement towards achieving reliable and affordable energy access for all; the event gives country stakeholders a chance to reach beyond their borders and collaborate across much-needed energy infrastructure solutions that benefit the whole.

The event brings together government officials, utilities, regulators, EPC Contractors, power pools, investors and who’s who of the energy sector, to discuss opportunities and solutions to bridge the gap in the African energy landscape. The programme aims to create partnerships and opportunities to connect investors, technology providers, project developers, as well as other innovators in the sector. From solar power to oil and gas, from facilities management to smart metering, Africa Energy brings it all together in one place in Rwanda, the heart of Africa.
