The Enlit Purpose

What is Enlit?

Enlit is an energy event unlike any other – because it is more than just an energy event. We are a community that for 365-days a year will gather and engage through a blended live and digital platform, known as Enlit Africa-Connect, to meet and inspire each other via content and connections.

That community will come together for three days in a digital format on Enlit Africa-Connect, 8 - 10 June 2021 and in Cape Town in May 2022 to meet and inspire each other and to develop their discussions and actions into a plan for the coming year.

Apart from our live and digital, regional meets up we will also bring you cutting edge content through webinars, exclusive one on one interviews with the who’s who of the energy sector, compelling content from our host publication ESI Africa, product launches, technology showcase and much, much more.

Our Promise

The boundaries of the sector are blurring and this evolution is being shaped by established players, external disruptors, innovative start-ups and the increasingly engaged end-user.

We promise to welcome you all and to provide a platform from which to seize all of the opportunities that the energy transition has to offer. Energy is evolving. So are we – so are you. Together we will make a difference.


Our Story: Africa

From its humble beginnings as South African Prepayment Week to the African Utility Week rebrand and then joining forces with POWERGEN Africa in 2019, the event continues to be Africa's premier meeting place for the entire power, energy and water value chain. 

Now 21 years on, we continue to innovate and lead the conversation on transforming Africa's energy and water economy, through expert-led content, business driven experiences, networking and strategic partnerships within the industry.

Our main goal is to connect you with the right people to help drive your business forward. We are the platform that allows you, the industry, to connect, inspire and evolve.
