AIX membership programme

A year-round forum for trusted debate and curated insight

African Energy’s experienced team of analysts has curated a programme designed to help energy sector stakeholders gain easy access to the information needed to support their decision-making at all stages of the project and investment lifecycle.

Exclusive data and insights

The programme includes:

  • Online panel-led discussions and roundtables – held like all AIX meetings under the Chatham House Rule
  • Factsheets based on the latest African Energy power sector research.
  • First access to quarterly analysis of African power sector data from African Energy Live Data a comprehensive database of more than 6,700 generation projects and plants, and the organisations behind them.
  • Q&A sessions with African Energy’s analysts on the latest research and trends.

Members have the opportunity to shape and contribute to these meetings and network with each other via the AIX online membership hub.

All AIX members will have unlimited access for their staff to online meetings, recognising that trusted sources of information, networking and exchange of ideas are important to a wide variety of roles across different teams and projects.

AIX membership – as well as tickets for in-person meetings – is free for Africa-based SMEs, utilities, regulators and public sector officials.
