This closed-door, interactive exchange day offers the opportunity for African businesses to meet European & international Technology and Business Leaders during the Conference & Break-Out Sessions. Further chances to matchmake are offered by the virtual EXPO and Networking Area. Furthermore, for training purposes we are offering Master Classes in parallel to the event.

Africa faces a unique set of challenges as it looks to embrace increased energy access. Globally Digitalisation is making inroads in almost every sector, and the energy sector is not left behind in this disruption. ‘Smart and Automated’ have practically become additions to the energy sector vocabulary. Digitalisation provides a grip into the integration of variable renewable sources to match energy demands, and potentially reduce Decarbonisation within the sector.

Opportunities to transform energy access in Africa are constantly arising, through renewable energy, Digitalisation provides a potential to make electricity infrastructure affordable, accessible, and available. However as with every opportunity, cost and challenges must be mitigated, as key to the Digitalisation of Africa’s energy access is deployment of innovation technologies, creating new financial models while benefiting society and the plants.
