Terrapinn - The Power & Electricity World Africa 2020 Movemeback African event cover image


Power & Electricity World Africa is the largest and longest running power and electricity conference and exhibition in Africa - the meeting place of Africa's energy sector. Entering its 23rd year, we are proud to welcome back over 40 African countries for the 2020 edition of the event, with a global speaker lineup. The conference has continued to be the largest of its kind in Africa, hosting Utilities, Large Energy Users, Government, Regulators and Municipalities. These decision makers, your buyers, are eager to engage and network with you.


The future of energy is now. There is no doubt that Africa is going through an exciting period of energy transformation. The continued growth in population has stemmed an escalated demand for energy, resulting in the search for alternative sources of energy. Utilities, IPPs, Government and end users alike are rapidly adapting to this new energy paradigm.


To remain relevant, power providers are constantly looking for knowledge and best practice on additional services, future-proofing business models, the solar and renewable explosion, staying customer centric and how to deliver sustainable, clean power to a changing world and consumer. Africa needs large investment in projects and the proper infrastructure to ensure that energy is delivered affordably, safely and consistently to households as well as to the industry.
