About The Conference

The DLO Africa Power Roundtable is a platform that hosts various gatherings of government, key investors and stakeholders in Africa’s energy sector with the objective of encouraging investment. Now in its 7th year the platform has hosted a number of events in Africa and has had success in bringing together key sector players and stakeholders.

With the growing interest of foreign investors in the growth potential of Africa’s power sector DLO Africa Power Roundtable will hold its inaugural meeting outside of the African continent. This gathering will bring together a delegation of various energy Ministers from key regions of the African continent, project developers and investors with the objective of creating awareness around investment opportunities in Africa’s energy market and addressing some of the challenges currently hindering investment
