An innovative online database for Africa's power industries

Revealing insights into Africa's clean energy future

We work with governments and companies to identify and illustrate risks, opportunities and trends, help find sustainable solutions to close Africa’s energy gap and support a clean energy transition across the continent.

Stimulating business engagement and long-term partnerships

African Energy set up the Africa Investment Exchange (AIX) in 2014 to establish an enduring dialogue for investors and energy industry professionals, with the aim of stimulating business engagement and long-term partnerships.

During that decade, through flagship meetings such as AIX Power & Renewables, AIX: Energy in Transition and AIX Nairobi, AIX has provided a unique platform for debate on developing sustainable projects within a framework of transparent policy and governance.

AIX membership includes access to online webinars and data insights and is included with all full African Energy newsletter and Live Data subscriptions.
