Our Brand Ambassadors:

View some this year's exciting speakers:

  • To me African Utility Week is the leader in the market when it comes to power generation - not only at utility scale, but also at a smaller scale. African Utility Week is excellent. It’s probably the best platform we have in SA. Not only from an industry point of view but also for networking with representatives of international agencies and governments.
    Tobias Hobbach
    Managing Director, Sustain Power
  • It was a very good conference, many thanks for giving me the opportunity to be at the panel discussion. The networking was just fantastic and so were the resource presentations. I am already receiving lots of communication from the networks through the conference.
    William W. Liabunya
    Chief Executive Officer, Electricity Generation Company (Malawi) Ltd
  • It was a very enriching experience and I got to learn a lot as well. African Utility Week was definitely one of my highlights for this year and I connected with some pretty amazing people. You guys did an absolutely fantastic job.
    Kuda Mzembe
    Co-founder, Advanced Power Technologies
  • African Utility Week was one of the most professional conferences I have attended, the service was great and the app helped me greatly in meeting and making contacts for the future.
    Raymond Murray
    Chief Executive Officer, Energy Procurement Services
  • It is the most important show we have every year. There are some people I don’t even see in Johannesburg that I see here every year. It brings the industry together in South Africa, but it also exposes us to a bigger utility market in Africa.
    Quinton Lamprecht
    Managing Director, Allbro
  • Thank you for organizing such a seamless and productive conference, your team did a fantastic job with such a large event.
    Bonnie Guo
    Project Finance Director, Energy And Infrastructure, Overseas Private Investment Corporation
  • For me it is a thriving event. Great guest list, some really good, entertaining, interesting speakers, talking about what’s happening, not just here in South Africa, but across so much of Africa.
    Phil Dingle
    Marketing Director, Lucy Electric
  • The African Utility Week expo brings a lot of vital stakeholders together that represents growth on the continent. It allows a more cohesive discussion amongst CEOs of utilities, OEMs, manufacturers, and partners which allows us to consider all the challenges that the energy industry is experiencing on the continent.
    Logan Moodley
    CEO, Conlog
  • 2019 will be PIC Group’s third consecutive year exhibiting at African Utility Week as it brings together so many key decision-makers from across the African power sector in one place at one time. African Utility Week has enabled us to expand our network and develop new opportunities with utilities, investors, OEMs, and EPCs throughout the African continent and beyond. As a global company, we’ve found it to be ‘the’ gateway event to the African power sector.
    Travis Barth
    Vice President, Global Business Development, PIC Group Inc.
