Africa Investment Exchange (AIX): Power & Renewables 2024


AIX Power & Renewables

29 October 2024 - 30 October 2024

RSA House, London

There are significant pockets of growth in the African electricity supply industry — from C&I in South Africa, climate-tech projects in Kenya, to a new appreciation of the need for a major upgrade of transmission infrastructure — but levels of private investment continue to disappoint in far too many jurisdictions.

AIX Power & Renewables 2024 will ask what investors want from government and what government needs from investors. It will also examine how other stakeholders should be accommodated in the official and corporate policy mix.

First held in 2014, AIX Power & Renewables has become one of the meeting places of choice for Africa’s power sector stakeholders, including leading private and public sector investors, African officials and project developers.
