The inaugural POWER-GEN Africa will provide comprehensive coverage of the power needs, resources, and issues facing the electricity generation industries across Sub-Saharan Africa. Global attention is being paid to Africa’s power requirements as the continent continues to experience rapid growth and development, driving the need for more widespread and reliable electricity.

In tackling these problems, the region also faces a great shortage in the area of trained engineering professionals.
POWER-GEN Africa’s targets those who work in the utility and private power sectors, engineering and commercial personnel from the equipment manufacturing and consulting fields. POWER-GEN
Africa addresses professionals from energy intensive industries with responsibility for ensuring power supply, and officials and ministers from the national and regional political spheres who are tasked with energy policy.
The three day event will feature a dual-track conference and an exhibition with many of the leading suppliers from both the International and African power sectors demonstrating their latest technologies.
POWER-GEN Africa is a unique annual forum for the industry, with both a world class conference combined with the exhibition showcasing the latest technological developments.
