Introduction to the Powering Africa: Summit

Introduction to the Powering Africa: Summit

The Powering Africa Summit will be held from 24 June - 1 July as an online event.

Since the Summit began in 2015, the event has attracted Ministerial and Governmental participation from African countries such as Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia. 

Each year, these leaders join U.S stakeholders Power Africa, U.S. Exim Bank, U.S International Development Finance Corporation, M.C.C, The World Bank, IFC, USTDA, institutional investors, private capital investors, and private technology and service providers to accelerate investment into Africa’s energy sector.

A new era of projects, partnerships and progress

With a new President in the White House, the 7th Edition of the Powering Africa Summit will provide an exciting platform for U.S intergovernmental agencies to promote policies and development focuses in the African energy sector under President Biden’s Administration. 

Previous Summits have featured extremely productive deep dives between public and private sector stakeholders. This year, the concept is taken to the next level focusing exclusively on boardrooms and working groups across a host of topics, with an emphasis on financing.

Boardrooms will tackle Climate Finance, Financing the Energy Transition, Financing the Off-Grid Sector, Cross-Technology Energy Generation, Finance Beyond Generation and Energy & Health, as well as country spotlights on South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, Morocco, Ghana and more.
