What took place in 2022

Energy Storage takes centre-stage

As the role of energy storage comes more to the fore, Enlit Africa will have a strong focus on storage across the various elements of the energy value chain, highlighting how it can be utilised to enhance the value and length of self-generation.

Feedback on the steps to take to install, size, price and finance storage will underpin a number of the discussions.

Smarter Mobility Africa is in the building

Focusing on the electrification of motorbikes, cars, taxis, vans, trucks, and busses, Smarter Mobility Africa Fleet Summit explores the challenges and opportunities around transitioning business and government fleets; charging infrastructure, financing, carbon emission reduction, cost savings, and the integration of electric vehicles with the grid- and off-grid technologies.

Learn more and attend the summit.

3 days of relevant content for large industry

Large industries are taking power generation into their own hands.
Mines in particular need secure, reliable supply to ensure a safe working environment and our 2022 programme will focus on how mines are utilising ‘disruptive’ technologies to secure their energy supply.

A Green Hub & GreenPitch Challenge

In collaboration with WESGRO, GreenCape and Atlantis SEZ, and as a Provincial Government initiative between local entities positioning the Western Cape as an investible green economy, we're bringing a pavilion dedicated to showcasing Green SMMEs who are active in the power, energy and smart mobility space. Including 12 micro pods on the pavilion and a Green Hub jam-packed with content over the 3 days. Attendees can learn, engage and network with the upcoming Green Economy leaders.

As part of the GreenCape initiative to promote “green economy”, the two outstanding winners of the GreenCape GreenPitch Challenge will be showcased within the Green Hub on the Enlit Africa exhibition floor.
