Cape Town - The African oil and power sector is proving to be an area that countries on the continent would want to exploit for their economic development.

The sector is currently re-aligning itself for bigger development in the future. Confirmation of this is the recently signed strategic partnership between Africa Oil & Power and the Africa Energy Chamber in a deal aimed at combining the partners’ extensive business networks to facilitate transactions and encourage investment in the oil, gas and power spaces. 
The groups revealed that the cooperation will apply to all of Africa Oil & Power’s regional and country investment conferences and will extend to new events on the continent and beyond.  
As part of the agreement, members and partners of the Africa Energy Chamber will receive a 15% discount to attend the Africa Oil & Power conference taking place September 5-7, 2018, in Cape Town, South Africa.
The event will gather 600 energy executives for a three-day programme featuring 15 African petroleum and power ministers and 75+ speakers. 
For the first time this year, Africa Oil & Power is dedicating an entire day to keynote presentations and moderated discussions on the power sector of Africa. 
Guillaume Doane, the CEO of Africa Oil & Power, said: “The vision of Africa Oil & Power and the Africa Energy Chamber are one and the same – to combine a pro-African attitude with a pan-African influence. We are excited to have access to their extensive African energy network.” 
Headquartered in Johannesburg, the African Energy Chamber is a progressive business network that promotes business and investment opportunities within the continent by connecting local corporations, foreign investors and ministerial parties. 
The Africa Energy Chamber unites African interests and aspirations under one voice that advocates for Africa’s companies and citizens and gives the continent a conscience on the global energy stage.
From local content development to universal electricity access, the Africa Energy Chamber’s engagement aims at placing Africa at the forefront of global energy investment and transformations. 
“As the AEC, we always encourage all our members to seek new partners and investors and expand their horizons to support their growth across the continent. We believe Africa Oil & Power is a perfect platform for them to do that,” said NJ Ayuk, the Chairman of the Africa Energy Chamber.

South Africa’s Energy Minister Jeff Radebe, as a welcome address, will open a packed agenda focusing on power finance prospects, the South Africa renewables IPP bidding round, and gas to power applications throughout the continent.
