Africa is a continent with huge, as yet unrealised, potential. It is endowed with a diversity of natural resources, a generally hospitable climate and enough land for all its people. You, the person reading these words, hold the key to unlocking this awesome potential. Africa’s potential is constrained by a lack of infrastructure; particularly energy infrastructure. Energy is the driver for social and economic development enabling education, healthcare, economic and commercial enterprise and social wellbeing. Energy impacts on the life of every person and every person can impact on the availability of affordable and reliable energy for this continent. Africa needs your knowledge and skill whatever it is [financial, legal, educational, technical, social] to develop the energy sector and unleash the potential of our continent. Africa Energy Indaba provides the process for you to meet with others who share your dream of a thriving Africa; a continent where all its citizens prosper; a continent we are proud to call “home”.
