The Africa Energy Indaba Conference is the definitive energy conference for Africa providing an annual programme that shapes energy policy for the continent.
The conference will provide delegates with the opportunity to debate policy, review industrial progress and market trends, discuss the efficiency of various public support mechanisms and public-private partnerships across the continent, and review new data and the latest technological trends globally.
|Date:||Tue, 02/16/2016 to Wed, 02/17/2016|

We collaborated with HydroWorld to produce this short film, showcasing views on the sector from four different hydropower associations: the International Hydropower Association, National Hydropower Association, Canadian Hydropower Association and Northwest Hydroelectric Association.
The documentary features views from Ken Adams, IHA's president, who speaks about future prospects for the industry, financing challenges and reporting on greenhouse-gas emissions from hydropower reservoirs.
At the end of 2015 we can look back on a significant year for hydropower, from the gathering of the sector at the World Hydropower Congress in Beijing, to the crucial Paris Agreement at COP21. Here are just some of the highlights of our travels.
International renewable energy organisations have come together at COP21 in Paris to demonstrate that reliable 100% renewable energy is not only possible, but that systems already exist today with significant potential for expansion.
On 29 November 1965, Québec revolutionised the world of electricity. Before the dignitaries present for the event, the world’s first 735-kV high-voltage line was commissioned. This innovation, which was closely followed by the international scientific community, would soon transform Québec’s energy development.
Achieving the goal of a world supplied by 100% renewable energy will require a clear understanding of how different renewable energy technologies can work together to provide reliable energy systems.
This side event brings together five renewable energy technology organisations, representing solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, and bioenergy, to provide case studies and best practices of cities, regions, and countries where various high-penetration combinations of renewable energy technologies are working together.

On Wednesday 2 December we hosted a webinar that provided an overview of the IHA/UNESCO project on the GHG status of freshwater reservoirs, an introduction to the G-res tool, as well as the opportunity for partcipants to pose questions to the tool's developers.
Mitigation of climate change is one of the most important areas for sustainable development, and measuring the relative contribution of harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is now an expectation in all sectors.
On Thursday 26 November we hosted a webinar entitled Climate resilience: what does it mean for the hydropower sector? In this video, you can watch the full recording.
The webinar brought together experts from IHA and the World Bank Group to present the results of a survey and the outcomes of a recent workshop on the topic.
