The organisers of the African Utility Week and Powergen Africa conference have announced a four-year partnership with the South African Ministry of Energy. As part of this partnership, Energy Minister Jeff Radebe will present the keynote address at the event in May.

African Utility Week DoE partner againTaking place in Cape Town from 14-16 May 2019, African Utility Week and Powergen Africa will see hundreds of industry decision-makers attending. The events focus on generation, including renewables, off grid, fossil fuels and nuclear, as well as transmission and distribution, including metering. They will also look at new technologies, including storage, mini grids, micro grids, IOT and ICT systems, as well as water.

“African Utility Week and Powergen Africa never disappoints with compelling content, inspiring speakers and the latest technology offerings. We are looking forward to another fruitful four-year partnership and taking valuable strides in our vision for a sustainable approach to South Africa’s energy deficit,” the Department of Energy said in a statement.

“Since his appointment, Minister Radebe has shown visionary and passionate leadership in terms of energy security, something that resonates greatly with our African power community, and we look forward to welcome him back to the event to hear his message,” says African Utility Week and Powergen Africa event director Evan Schiff.

“The potential of renewable energy sources such as solar, storage solutions and mini-grid generation projects are just some of the exciting focus areas at this year’s African Utility Week and Powergen Africa and we expect more than 10 000 energy and water professionals from across Africa and the world to gather in the Mother City. Renewing our previous successful four-year partnership with the Energy Ministry allows us to further entrench South Africa’s leading role on the continent and within the international power community.”
