The future of renewable energy for Africa

Everything you want and need to know about renewable energy and the future of energy development and growth in Africa comes under the spotlight at Energy Revolution Africa 2017. This co-located event to African Utility Week is being hosted for the first time in Africa at the CTICC in Cape Town.

Located at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, from May 16 to 18, 2017, Energy Revolution Africa provides a dynamic meeting place for solution providers, consultants, renewable energy producers, and the African and global energy minds of the future.

Most of the more than one billion people living in Africa are unserved by traditional grid supply. This energy landscape is changing as consumers, independent power producers, and other stakeholders change the way in which energy is generated and distributed. Green innovations and disruptive technologies are making it possible to quickly roll out integrated microgrid solutions.

‘In this context it made sense for us to move with the market and introduce a platform focused on the future of green energy,’ explains Evan Schiff, event director of African Utility Week and Energy Revolution Africa.

Focusing on community-scale projects and innovation in the sectors of renewables, future technology, microgrids, energy efficiency and energy storage, Energy Revolution Africa showcases the latest technology, practical solutions and examples from successful community and commercial projects.

‘It is a powerful opportunity for new energy purchasers and large power users – from commercial property developers and the agricultural sector to mines and metros – to discover the exciting opportunities and technologies emerging in a fast-growing renewable technology sector,’ he adds.

The programme includes a three-day Energy Revolution Africa strategic programme as part of the sessions, three days of focused Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accredited technology workshops and case studies freely available on the exhibition floor, real-life project experience, and exhibitions by more than 60 service and solution providers.
