Africa Energy Forum 2021

The official AEF Aggreko banner

The 2021 Africa Energy Forum is taking place from 15-17 November in London – and we will be there to discuss and showcase our wealth of experience in providing mobile, modular power, heating and cooling.

This year, the flagship event for the African utility sector reuniting in one place.

At this important point, the conference is a rare moment for governments, energy markets and industry leaders to come together and explore the opportunities and challenges across this exciting and fast-changing continent.

As Africa looks to bridge the power gap at the lowest possible cost, a number of themes emerge.

Our Managing Director - Africa, John Lewis, will be joined by a number of senior executives and experts to add Aggreko’s voice to these important debates:

  • Monday 15 November (1440-1450 Keynote speech – John Lewis, Managing Director Africa
  • Tuesday 16  November (0900-1030) Aggreko Hosted Seminar – Noreen Howat, Head of Group Strategy
  • Tuesday 16 November (1045-1215)  Panel: The Role of Gas as an Enabler Of Transition & Who Will Be Funding The
    Financing Gap
     – Conor Dooley, Director of Business Development – Energy Sectors 
  • Wednesday 17 November (0945-1115) Panel: Current Technological Innovations – The solution for Utilities  – Serge Mevo, Head of Utilities – Africa
  • Wednesday 17 November (1130-1300) Panel: Emergence of Industrial Parks and Captive Power - Eddy Alexandre, Business Development Manager

This will include:

The focus on the development of renewables over the last six years, the move towards decentralised local energy sources and microgrids, as well as the increasingly innovative deployment of thermal energy.


Africa has a bright energy future, but providing power is a unique challenge.

Since Aggreko was founded over 50 years ago, we’ve been developing innovative solutions for emerging markets. In Africa, where we have focused for over 20 years, power plays a critical role in helping countries to industrialise and enhance living standards.

Since 2012, the pace of electrification on the continent has nearly tripled, relative to the rate between 2000 and 2012. But challenges persist, and there are big issues the industry collectively needs to address.

We know the energy industry across Africa will never stop moving. So our team will be there to discuss how mobile, modular equipment and reliable power solutions can help shape a new future, and to share our deep sector knowledge with businesses of all sizes.

Our commitment to developing and hiring from the local community and our stringent QHSE standards will also be up for discussions, as well as our integrated Solar-Diesel Hybrid solutions and optimised NGG.

  We are proud of the service we provide round the world, and Africa is no exception. No one yet knows exactly what the new energy world will look like, so we are striving to make sure it’s a cleaner, easier one.

But wherever it takes us, the ability to provide power and cooling will continue to open up opportunity and create potential for individuals, communities, industries and societies all over the world, especially in Africa.

Together and over time, we believe our services make a massive difference.
