This year at African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa, the conference will focus on 5 tracks, based on the industry trend of connecting the full value chain, so content is not siloed by industry and reflects the many disciplines required for a modern, smart power industry.

  1. The Future Cities conference will look at Africa’s current urban living challenges and ask what is needed for the cities of tomorrow and who will be leading the way?
  2. Learn about the finance and investment trends and forecasts for Africa’s power infrastructure in the Power Strategy Development conference, tailored to utilities and companies with an interest in finance and investment as well as generation options.
  3. The Smart Energy conference will combine metering-based topics with the latest smart grid solutions to equip the sector's leaders and innovators.
  4. Energy Revolution Africa provides a dynamic meeting place for solution providers, consultants, renewable energy producers and the African and global energy minds to develop alternative solutions towards the acceleration of Africa’s sustainable electrification.
  5. The Water conference will bring together experts from public and private sectors to support municipalities as they become more responsive and efficient in their practices.
