The 2021 agenda will focus on the following topics:

  • Climate Finance
  • Financing the Energy Transition
  • Financing the Off-Grid Sector
  • Finance Beyond Generation
  • Energy & Health
  • Country spotlight series: South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, Morocco & Ghana
The Summit will feature a number of boardrooms on the sector's most pressing topics with the objective of driving productive conversation to advance energy developments on the continent. These boardrooms will range between 25-50 attendees with a designated chair guiding discussions, as well as a handful of selected expert speakers.

The agenda is currently being finalised and will be released soon. To be one of the first to receive it, join our mailing list below and we'll email you a copy.

The safety of our attendees and staff remains our top priority in 2021. 

While EnergyNet expects to be able to deliver a COVID-safe live event in Washington D.C., we are prepared to pivot to an online summit if required to do so. The nature of the summit means that the boardrooms will continue to provide you with a personal, interactive and valuable experience. In the event that the meeting cannot take place live, we will circulate an adapted virtual agenda.

In the meantime we strongly recommend you follow your own country’s advice on travel before starting your journey to the Summit.
