The two-day flagship event is going to be the official meeting place for the energy industry, under the patronage of the Ministry of Mines and Energy led by minister Tom Alweendo.

Under the theme, ‘The Energy Mix: Positioning for Investment, industrialisation and Growth’, this thought leadership event will convene energy stakeholders with investors and international partners to drive industry growth and development as well as promote Namibia and Africa as the destination for energy investments. Participating companies, international investors, service companies and various international delegations, will share updates on exploration activities, green hydrogen and regional gas and other ongoing projects and announce future projects while highlighting upcoming business and investment opportunities.

Managing director of RichAfrica Ndapwilapo Selma Shimutwikeni stated, “This is a great opportunity for the private sector to get on board in our collective drive to highlight development and opportunities in the energy sector.” 

The conference will take a close look at global and continental energy perspectives and their impact, the latest developments in the oil and gas industry, the status of the power & electricity market, the role of natural gas as well as the future of renewables. It will also feature relevant topics such as financing the energy sector, infrastructure development, ESG matters and the African Continental Free Trade Area.

Namibia continues to see a lot of exploration activity with proven reserves - estimated at 11 billion barrels of oil and 2.2 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. The country has been a major attraction for both regional and international oil companies. Namibia continues to show leadership in developing a massive Green Hydrogen project which could produce 300,000 tonnes of green hydrogen a year for regional and global markets.
