Energy access is fundamental to the economic development of every country, driven by population increase and industrialisation, with a landscape of depleting fossil fuels and climate change. The energy industry is changing and so is the role of the traditional utility. We are seeing more IPPs, more distributed generation, more micro grids and more off grid solutions and it is not just on a commercial scale, we are seeing these changes at community level, too. As the technology behind renewable energy evolves, more consumers will cut their ties with incumbent utilities and generate their own source of power. East Africa is experiencing these changes and with its abundant natural energy resources and its drive towards building environmentally cleaner energy; there is an increase in foreign direct investment into the region, influencing the rapid uptake of renewable and clean energy solutions.

Future Energy East Africa provides a platform for public and private stakeholders to engage in such discussions around the future of the East African energy sector, giving stakeholders the opportunity to benchmark their operations, challenges and achievements against their peers and seek suppliers who are looking to gain access to projects across the region.
