Africa Energy Forum 2012 in Berlin: On June 26th to June 28th, The Africa Energy Forum (AEF) will be taking place in Berlin. AEF was launched in 1999, it is Africa’s premier annual power investment and business forum, where governments and state utilities address the international energy community on opportunities available in Africa’s power sectors. Now in its 14th year, the Africa Energy Forum is the established meeting place for the African power sector. All the players in the industry are in the same place at the same time. As the International Finance Corporation noted in 2011 “AEF is the biggest and most interesting conference on African energy in the world.” AEF unites government and power utilities of Africa with the energy industry to focus on delivering power infrastructure projects in Africa. With massive demand for power in Africa, and international investors keen to fund power projects, this is the established event that African governments and private sector attend year on year. As a result AEF has become the place to do business and meet new and prospective clients.
