Africa Energies Summit gathering pace

Energy security is the biggest challenge facing the African Continent and it is more crucial than ever for African leaders and energy companies to engage to build a path of prosperity through energy for Africa. It's a matter of days until the agenda for the Africa Energies Summit goes live, including a wide range of speakers from governments, regulators, international energy companies, investors and international development partners. Members receive £350 discount on in-person tickets and free virtual attendance. Members login to your Members Portal for these benefits.

Our Africa Energies Summit has become a “must attend” for all companies active in the region’s energy industry. It’s also become a “must sponsor” for those who are committed to supporting a global forum in which Africa’s energy industry can learn and debate, whilst making the connections and deals that are fundamental to its success.

We’re proud to reveal many key players as Summit Sponsors and thank them for the outstanding role they play in creating an event without equal. As ever, our aim is to create a high-value Summit that delegates derive significant value from attending, as a recent testimonial from a government official alludes to:

"Frontier, the organisers are well connected in the energy exploration and financing circles in London and globally. I found it to be one of my most enriching events."

War in Ukraine     

Frontier stands with Ukraine. The immediate and long term ramifications of Russia's war in Ukraine are both seismic and devastating not least for the Ukrainian people and neighbours but also developing nations. The energy industry takes centre stage for better or worse and it is a stark reminder of the interplay between energy and geopolitics, and the fragility of stability. 

To make sense of this here is an excellent Member Article War In Ukraine And The Gas Crisis Force A Rethink Of EU Foreign Policy from Francis GhilèsAssociate Senior ResearcherBarcelona Centre for International Affairs. Francis is a Confirmed Speaker at the Africa Energies Summit speaking on North African energy politics. 

For most of us, these events are out of our control, but there is a lot we can still do. I challenge you to use your sphere of influence for the proliferation of democracy, alleviation of poverty and sustainability. 

We all have a voice. Let's use it.
