RSA House, London and online, 16-17 November 2022

Africa Investment Exchange: Power & Renewables


16-17 November 2022, RSA House, London and online

First held at RSA House in 2014, AIX: Power & Renewables has become one of the meeting places of choice for Africa’s power sector stakeholders, including leading private and public sector investors, African officials and project developers.

The meeting is held under the Chatham House Rule which allows participants to break down the barriers by holding frank and open panel-led discussions without their identity or affiliation, nor that of any other participant, being revealed.

AIX: Power & Renewables is co-organised by Cross- border Information (CbI), and CbI’s African Energy, a consultancy that has been involved at the heart of the debate surrounding the development of the energy sector in Africa for more than 20 years.
