General Questions

The African Energy Week is the African Energy Chamber’s first ever interactive exhibition and networking event that seeks to unite African energy stakeholders, drive industry growth and development, and promote Africa as the destination for African-focused events. The event is committed to African people and African energy with strong encouragement towards a global audience to Cape Town where we will make decisions on the future of the continent’s natural resources and energy sectors.
The event comprises high-level discussions, debates, networking opportunities and exhibitions, private meetings, project site visits with governments and stakeholders from the energy and financial sectors and ranging from renewables to oil and gas.
African Energy Week 2021 will take place across several venues located in the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa.
The concept of an Energy Village lends a narrative of networking through the sector’s advancements of leapfrogging the energy transition; work towards renewable energy solutions; addressing opportunities and challenges of investment on the continent and creating an enabling environment. Additionally, the Energy Village enables companies to explore sponsorship opportunities with high-level reception options including lunches and cocktail events, as well as panel discussions and a golf tournament. This concept ensures increased exposure for companies, and additionally creates the opportunity for more exclusive sessions, enabling intimate networking opportunities.
