The 13th German-African Energy Forum, which will take place on the 27th and 28th of March, aims to highlight the most promising areas for investment opportunities and energy co-operation between German and African companies. Themed “Realising & Financing Africa’s Energy Revolution”, the forum will focus on smart energy systems, waste-to-energy, renewable energies, hybrid systems and energy financing.

German African Energy Forum to focus on investment opportunities“German companies are global leaders in renewable energy, off-grid solutions, gas-to-power and the development of power infrastructure, especially in the transmission & distribution area. Attracting further German investments into Africa will be very beneficial to meet capital requirements in energy infrastructure and promote technology and skills transfers,” says NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman at the African Energy Chamber.

He adds that Africa’s LNG production is rising and set to change global energy dynamics. South Africa is on a path to be an LNG producer, while Congo, Cameroon, Tanzania, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Mozambique, Rwanda and Sudan continue to show progress as potential LNG powerhouses. German companies with the right technology have the immediate benefit of investing and executing contracts in power projects around Africa, he says.

“African countries must continue creating an enabling environment for German investors. It is critical for entrepreneurs and for job creation. Germany is a key partner for Africa, and German technology and know-how will be key in addressing Africa’s energy challenges.”

Attendees at the event will include ministers from South Africa, Angola, Morocco, Ghana, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, The Gambia, Burkina Faso, and Somalia, as well as German and European such as ABB, Siemens, Allianz, Voith, Lucas Nülle, Inzag, Gauf Engineering, Andritz and Tractebel.

“African delegates benefit from a special discounted price and the Chamber encourages all members and partners across our network to participate and seek opportunities with German companies during the forum,” Ayuk says.
