African Utility Week 2016 – Hexing

About African Utility Week
The 17th annual African Utility Week is the only global meeting place, conference and trade exhibition for African power and water utility professionals and offers a unique networking opportunity for engineers, stakeholders and solution providers alike.

Exhibition – 250 exhibitors on 12,000sqm

This market leading trade exhibition is the first port of call for senior decision makers from utilities, governments, large power users, IPPs, consultants, contractors and regulators to source the latest solutions or to meet new clients and suppliers. Participating as an exhibitor will enable you to make crucial contacts within the African power and water industry, enter new markets and widen your network. See current list of exhibitors

Conference – 1200 delegates 

If challenges around power generation, T&D, metering, clean energy, finance, reliability, water supply or energy efficiency are keeping you awake at night, African Utility Week will be the right place to find suitable solutions, best practices and case studies from around the world. 

Networking – 6000 attendees, unlimited networking opportunities

The 3-day exhibition means more engagement time between delegates, visitors and exhibitors. A more engaging exhibition floor with product demonstrations, workshops, cocktail functions, free refreshments and meeting lounges will create business opportunities for our attendees.

Any company with an interest in Africa’s power and water industry cannot afford to miss this event. South African utility Eskom and the Ministries of Energy and Water Affairs as well as local municipalities such as Johannesburg’s City Power and the City of Cape Town have been key event partners for many years. Large African utilities such as Tanesco, SNEL, Senelec, UEGCL, KenGen, TCN, ZESCO, NamPower and many more are regular visitors.

Africa’s top utility projects and power professionals honoured at African Utility Week in May

Cape Town utility event to gather more than 5000 power professionals

Africa’s leading utility, energy and water professionals and projects are to be honoured again at the annual African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa that is taking place in Cape Town from 12-14 May this year.

Designed to celebrate the African triumphs and successes of the industry throughout 2014, the industry will be able to nominate candidates for ten award categories in the African Utility Week Industry Awards on 13 May, ranging from Utility Executive to Clean Energy Project of the Year and the new category of Outstanding Woman in Power/Water.

The esteemed panel of judges that will decide on the winners includes Brian Dames, former Eskom CEO, Musara Beta, Chief Market Analyst, Southern African Power Pool (SAPP), Zimbabwe and Peter Mtonda, Director of Distribution & Customer Services, ESCOM, Malawi.

Awards create excitement in industry
“It is gratifying to see how much excitement these awards have created in the industry” says African Utility Week event director Evan Schiff. He adds: “last year the sold-out, inaugural African Utility Week Industry Awards were the hot ticket of the event and a huge success. Needless to say, there is a lot of interest again from the utility sector to enter for the awards and to attend.”

Last year’s awards evening was attended by some 500 leading executives from across the power, water, renewable energy, finance and investment spheres, and was declared a long overdue addition to what is the largest utility gathering of its kind on the continent. African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa is attended by more than 5000 power and water professionals from more than 30 African countries and 70 worldwide.

“We remain an event for the industry and by the industry”, says Evan Schiff, “and invite all power professionals on the continent again to send us their nominations and we look forward to sharing their triumphs with their peers. Together we will honour those companies and executives who have been responsible for pioneering new frontiers, pushing boundaries, for inspiring others and for achieving growth for Africa.”

• Lifetime Achievement Award

Gathering thousands of energy professionals
For the past 14 years, the African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa conference and exhibition has helped to reduce the energy consumption of commercial and industrial large power users and has assisted in African utilities providing electricity and water to all of Africa. The event brings together thousands of utility professionals from across the globe to learn, share knowledge and debate the key topics that will secure the future development of Africa’s power industry. These include energy efficiency, improved service delivery, renewable energy and collaboration across the continent and investment in new power projects. South Africa’s state utility Eskom has been a key partner for many years.
