Digital Energy Festival: five-week tour de force

Christiane Appel - Friday, October 2, 2020    

Private sector participation in the energy sector, small-scale hydro and mini-grid opportunities, desalination as an option to secure water security and helping SSMEs with a toolkit are just some of the highlights of the Digital African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa agenda in November. The programme forms part of the upcoming 'Digital Energy Festival for Africa' which unites African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa, Africa Energy Forum and the Oil & Gas Council's Africa Assembly under one banner, offering an unprecedented five-week tour de force. The 'Digital Energy Festival' takes place from 20 October to 26 November 2020. The digital platform will allow attendees to access content and networking offerings across all three market-leading events with one point of entry, making it the largest ever energy event for the African continent marketed to a combined energy database of over 200,000. "It is inspiring to be part of such a unique joint venture with two other leading players in the energy events sector," says Chanelle Hingston, Power & Energy Group director at Clarion Events Africa. The next live, in-person edition of African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa will take place from 11 to 13 May, 2021 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. (ch)
