Advancing Africa's energy transition. Together.

Enlit Africa, formerly African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa, is an energy exhibition and conference unlike any other. We are the leading platform that gathers Africa's power, energy and water community for 365-days a year to meet and inspire each other via world-class content and valuable connections. That community will come together for three days in a hybrid format in Cape Town from 16 - 18 May 2023. 

Apart from our live and digital events, we deliver 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 showcases and much, much more.
