The Africa Wind Energy 2022 Conference and Exhibition is a two-day virtual summit that will shed a spotlight on wind energy as a major driver of Africa's energy revolution. The event will unite top thought leaders and key players in the sector to assess avenues to fully align wind energy with the high growth trajectory on the continent. Crucially, the most lucrative opportunities in the wind energy market and the renewable energy sector as a whole will be explored, and solutions will be proffered to maximize the potential payoffs for all stakeholders and the African continent as a whole.

This is a business networking platform between multiple stakeholders in the Africa’s wind value chain. The two-day show is estimated to attract 300+ industrial stakeholders, representing federal and state governments in Africa, local and international investors, developers, network system operators, financiers, EPCSs, as well a key turbine manufactures & solution provider.

Join key experts, practitioners, stakeholders, and leaders from around the world to discuss the innovations in the wind energy space, as well as national policies, legislative actions, and best practices to fully harness the potential of wind energy in Africa.

At the Africa Wind Energy 2022 Conference and Exhibition, we will take a closer look at ways to tap into the full potential of African Wind Energy. Discussions will centre around the expansion of infrastructure, the electrification of end-use sectors, decarbonising the way we do business, technical troubleshooting, financing, and ultimately, charting the path for the renewable energy sources such as wind to thrive.

With abundant marine resources, year-round sunlight, and much more, Africa certainly has abundant resources to endlessly harness renewable energy. However, the massive potential here is not being seized, with more than 600 million Africans - equivalent to half the population in the continent, still lacking access to any electricity.

A new report by GWEC Market Intelligence suggests in 2020, 821MW of new wind power capacity was installed in Africa and the Middle East, bringing total capacity in the region to 7GW.

The analysis demonstrates South Africa installed 515MW of new wind power capacity last year. The southernmost country in Africa keeps the top spot in the wind power market in the region with 2.5GW of cumulative wind power capacity installed in the country until now.

The wind energy market in South Africa is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 3% during the forecast period of 2020-2025.

However, according to data published by the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation, the wind potential of the African continent alone is more than 59,000GW.

World Bank data estimates the continent’s technical wind resource potential to be more than 59,000 gigawatts (GW), yet currently-installed capacity represents a miniscule 0.01% of this figure, according to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). This untapped potential presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for investors. Most importantly, mass adoption of a renewable energy source such as wind power has the potential for massive job creation, improving the standards of living for the majority of the continent’s population and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollution.

Africa is tapping just 0.01% of its wind energy potential and the wind marketing is growing. This exhibition is a great opportunity to meet new and existing customers.

Join us at the Africa Wind Energy 2022 Conference and Exhibition, as leading experts, investors, and major stakeholders in the wind energy sector to align on its future success within the green energy landscape. The WindAfrica 2022 Conference and Exhibition will offer the ideal space for networking with industry players; senior managers, decision-makers, and practitioners operating in the industries and making the most of wind energy technologies.

The Africa Wind Energy 2022 Conference and Exhibition will bring together, over 2 days, the main authorities and executives of the sector who discuss the main issues of the wind sector today. Among its participants, more than 70% have strong influence and decision power in their companies, making the Wind Africa 2022 Conference and Exhibition a unique opportunity for networking and brand impact before the highest echelon of the national wind sector.
