The African Energy Chamber (AEC) has announced a list of Africa’s top movers and shakers in a push to promote the role of African players in driving energy sector growth and success.
The chamber also recently announced the launch of its highly anticipated State of African Energy 2022 outlook.
Comprising an outline for Africa’s energy sector, the report provides reliable information on Africa’s power industry, emphasising challenges and opportunities, and paving the way for an influx of investment in the continent’s lucrative energy sector.
Specifically, the outlook draws attention to the influential and impactful individuals who are not only leading African companies and organisations into a new era of enhanced activity, but are positioning the continent as a globally competitive energy market.
Industry leaders including President Macky Sall of Senegal, Minister Gwede Mantashe of South Africa, Mohammed Barkindo, OPEC secretary general, Hu Xiaolian from China’s Export-Import Bank, Minister Gabriel Obiang Lima of Equatorial Guinea, Patrick Pouyanné (chief executive of TotalEnergies) and Fleetwood Grobler (CEO of SASOL), together with others such as Minister Chief Timipre Sylva, Proscovia Nabbanja (the chief executive of Uganda National Oil Company), Rolake Akinkugbe Filani, chief commercial officer at Mixta Africa, and Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh of Ghana, are just some of the names in this category.
Dynamic year ahead
The list aims to note individuals active across the entire sector value chain who are making significant progress to advance Africa’s energy industry.
With 2022 poised to be both a remarkable and a dynamic year for Africa’s energy sector, the projects, initiatives and objectives undertaken by these individuals will be both exciting and transformative.
The list serves as a form of introduction to these projects, providing readers with a starting base for further analysis of Africa’s plans for 2022.
“The State of African Energy 2022 outlook is an exceptionally detailed, multi-sector understanding of the current and future state of the African energy sector. Within the report, data-based projections, current challenges and opportunities and future investment trends offer readers the knowhow for navigating Africa’s energy sector in 2022.
“By drawing attention to the movers and shakers to watch in 2022, the report not only challenges these individuals to step up to the challenge and drive Africa into a new era of enhanced sector success but provides readers with a baseline as to who to watch in 2022 and beyond,” says N J Ayuk, executive chairman of the AEC.
Valuable for investors
The report represents the only consolidated document to provide a detailed understanding of the future of Africa’s power sector.
Serving as a prelude to the continent’s premier energy event, African Energy Week (AEW) 2021, which will take place in Cape Town in November, the outlook is not only transformative for the continent’s growth but will be particularly valuable for investors looking to capitalise on Africa’s significant oil and gas opportunities.
AEW 2021, in partnership with South Africa’s Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE), is the AEC’s annual conference, exhibition and networking event.
AEW 2021 unites African energy stakeholders with investors and international partners to drive industry growth and development and promote Africa as the destination for energy investments.
