What's On

What is African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa?

Over the last 19 years, African Utility Week has grown to be Africa’s premier meeting place for the entire power, energy and water value chain. It now forms part of Clarion Energy, with over 40 global events that cover the Power, Energy, Oil, Gas and Water sectors making it one of Clarion Events largest portfolios.

This new development also brings the co-location of POWERGEN Africa in 2019, adding an expanded focus on Generation (Including renewables, off grid, fossil fuels and nuclear) while still concentrating on transmission and distribution (including metering), new technologies (including storage, mini grids, micro grids, IOT and ICT systems) and of course water.

The event offers attendees the opportunity to discuss real commercial propositions and streamline their purchasing process by connecting African utility, municipality and commercial decision makers with technology and service providers. In 2019, we will accelerate this process to ensure African Utility Week continues as the nexus for sourcing new business opportunities no matter your sector. This growth focus tracks the expected level of new projects coming online over the medium term on the continent.
