The annual Africa Energy Forum (AEF) will celebrate its 20th birthday in Mauritius. The four day conference and private exhibition is usually held in Europe.

“The decision to move the Forum to Mauritius from its usual location in Europe came about to celebrate the achievements of the AEF community on ‘home turf’,” the event organisers said in a statement. “Strategically located in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is ideally located for doing business in Africa, as well as being internationally recognised for its governance framework, ease of doing business and investor-friendly environment.”

Africa Energy Conference MauritiusThe theme for this year’s Forum is ‘Reflections on the last 20 years’. Key figures who have shaped Africa’s energy sector will share their knowledge, experiences and future forecasts with attendees.

The event will focus on its theme of building a coherent strategy for the next 20 years. The World Bank and University of California, Berkeley will collaborate with organisers EnergyNet to record an action plan during the conference. The action plan will detail objectives for the next 20 years, to lay the foundations for future generations of energy users in Africa.

Agenda highlights include country focus sessions exploring the unique energy environments of countries across the continent; Africa’s gas to power future, including an update on current projects; and an in-depth look at the success rate of initiatives and tools developed over the last two decades. Awards of Recognition will be presented to individuals who have made a significant contribution to the sector over the 20 years.

Last year’s AEF, held in Denmark, 2 000 participants from 77 countries attending.

This year’s event, from 19-22 June, will make provision for an even higher number of delegates. Two hotels will be reserved for the duration of the conference, with the AEF Village to be built on the grounds of a football pitch in the South West of Mauritius.
