Largest and longest running regional power conference and exhibition in East Africa

What is Future Energy East Africa?

Energy access is fundamental to the economic development of every country, driven by population increase and industrialisation, with a landscape of depleting fossil fuels and climate change. 

The energy industry is changing and so is the role of the traditional utility. We are seeing more IPPs, more distributed generation, more micro grids and more off grid solutions and it is not just on a commercial scale, we are seeing these changes at community level too. As the technology behind renewable energy evolves, more and more consumers will cut their ties with incumbent utilities and generate their own source of power.

East Africa is experiencing these changes too and with its abundant natural energy resources and its drive towards building environmentally cleaner energy, there is an increase in foreign direct investment into the region, influencing the rapid uptake of renewable & clean energy solutions.
