The German-African Energy Forum is the flagship event of economic cooperation between Germany and the African continent. For thirteen years, the conference has been hosting up to 500 participants, a yearly average of ten African government delegations and continues to be a popular destination for leading energy businesses from Germany, Europe and Africa. That is why we are pleased to announce the
14th German-African Energy Forum
Regaining Momentum: Africa’s Energy leading to a Smart, Green & Inclusive Economic Transformation
on June 1st & 2nd, 2021
hybrid – in Hamburg and on your screens
The economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and the ongoing digital transformation of economies need a green, smart and quick response from the energy sector. Power generation is still one of the main enablers for inclusive economic growth in Africa.
During the pandemic, the 14th German-African Energy Forum will therefore continue to be a platform to discuss trends, promote innovative approaches and host the future of German-African Energy partnerships. To unlock the full potential of the well-established forum and the opportunities of digitalization, the 14th edition of the conference will be held as a hybrid event, embedded in theGerman-African Energy Days 2021, the first of its kind events series with five days of program all around energy in Africa with a focus on the cooperation with Germany & Europe.
While we continue to gather stakeholders from Europe and Africa in Hamburg on June 1st & 2nd, we will open the German-African Energy Forum digitally to hundreds of stakeholders in Africa and the world.
The highlight of the second part of the German-African Energy Days will be the launch of the conference 1st Unlocking Industries – Hydrogen in Africa on June 8th, 2021 broadcasted from Germany and selected African countries.
We look forward to welcoming you, to discussing relevant topics and to networking!
