The forum will capitalise on the investment potential of the UK and promote its strong relationship potential with Africa. The AEF is the global investment meeting for Africa’s energy, power, infrastructure and industrial sectors stakeholders.

Programme director Shiddika Mohamed said, “The theme of the 2016 Forum this year is ‘Mergers and Acquisitions’, so hosting the Forum in the world’s M&A capital will enable Africa’s growing number of small and mid-cap power developers to present their business to decision makers from across the investment spectrum.”

Highlights of the forum include the EnergyNet Student Engagement Initiative, which will bring 50 African students to the forum from relevant disciplines to build relationships with industry leaders in the power sector.

The Growing Economies Energy Forum (GEEF) will launch this year at the AEF, running alongside the main forum. GEEF will host open discussions between the governments and private sector from new energy markets such as Iran, Pakistan, Myanmar and Cuba, as these growing economies open up for international investment following political and economic developments.

AEF is open to c-suite investors and developers with a vested interest in Africa’s energy and industrial sectors.
