  • Post COVID, Africa’s energy sector is back in full swing.
  • With an increase in attendance of 81% from 2022 to 2023, the organisers of this year’s Enlit Africa anticipate a “bumper event that will be attended by global dignitaries and industry leaders”.
  • Enlit Africa 2024 takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from May 21 to 23.
  • The event brings together prominent decision-makers, thought leaders and industry experts to discuss topics such as financing and gas-to-power (GtP) solutions.

“We anticipate more than 7 500 people at Enlit Africa this year, with representatives from Egypt, Ethiopia, Angola, Ghana, Uganda, Nigeria, CÔte d’Ivoire and other countries attending,” said Chanelle Hingston, event director at Enlit Africa.

She adds that the theme for this year’s event – Less Talk, More Action – aims to encourage attendees and speakers to move away from talk in favour of action and implementation.

“In some cases, we have been speaking about the same challenges for two or more decades. It is, therefore, important that we start holding stakeholders accountable and demanding action that is going to make a difference for the 600-million people across Africa who still do not have access to reliable energy supply. That is the only way we can ensure that the energy transition is not only sustainable, but ‘just’ as well.”

The organisers are pleased to introduce an additional element – pitch sessions – for projects that aim to unlock financing for further development.

“We have 15 projects that will be showcased on May 22 during the Renewable Energy and Storage Programme, and this is open not only to financiers but also anyone interested in finding out what is happening from a projects perspective,” adds Hingston.

“By empowering Africa and incorporating its insights, the energy transition can be more effectively and sustainably managed,” Hingston conclude

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
