Power & Energy


The Power & Energy portfolio is the largest and longest running portfolio at Spintelligent featuring flagship event, African Utility Week and co-located event POWERGEN Africa.

Due to rapid economic growth, Africa’s governments and utilities face the challenge of addressing the rising demand for electricity and water supply. Power shortages affect about half of the countries and an estimated 300 million people in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to water and sanitation. This highlights the importance of enhancing the power & energy sector across the continent and the investment potential.

This portfolio connects the leading stakeholders in the public and private sector to address the challenges faced by the industry and to share, discuss and debate the future of Africa’s economic and infrastructure development.

African Utility Week and co-located event POWERGEN Africa connects connects power and energy industry professionals from over 80 countries creating a unique meeting place for Africa’s infrastructure sector. The event offers the leading global platform to strengthen partnerships, drive infrastructure development and network with over 350 solution providers and 10,000 industry professionals from across Africa.

Key regional events Future Energy East Africa and Future Energy Nigeria ensure the portfolio’s continental presence in the power & energy sector in sub-Saharan Africa.  

The Power & Energy portfolio is supplemented by our training programmes and key industry publications ESI Africa and Smart Energy International, online portals, produced in-house by the Print & Digital Media department.
