Event overview

The 2017 Future Energy East Africa conference and exhibition will bring together leaders from the regional and international power and energy community to discuss the status of critical projects, spot lucrative opportunities and share best practice. The annual event fosters a platform for key partnerships to be formed, projects to be benchmarked and knowledge to be transferred.

The event boasts both a strategic conference and a large trade exhibition which provides a platform for public and private stakeholders to engage in discussions around the future of East African energy utilities, giving stakeholders the opportunity to benchmark their operations, achievements and challenges against their peers and seek suppliers who are looking to gain access to projects across the region.



74 solution providers showcased their products service to over 800 visitors.


The FREE to attend technical workshops are designed to upskill your team, with international and local speakers to present and demonstrate their solutions.


Attendees had the opportunity to exchange business cards during the networking function, where they enjoyed refreshments at the end of an eventful day.


The East African Power Industry Awards is the leading event and platform to recognise, reward and celebrate the success of East Africa’s power and energy sector during 2016/17.
