Energy Forum

Houston, Texas


Energy Capital & Power’s top priority remains to keep our people, partners, and clients safe. Therefore, the dates of our scheduled events are subject to change as we monitor the global progress of COVID-19. Please check our website for updates and for your safety, click here to read our COVID-19 Event Guidelines.

The energy industry landscape has transformed, and as Africa and the United States get their respective energy sector recoveries underway, now is the time to take a new approach to Africa’s most important commercial partnership in oil, gas and power. As the Biden Administration resets and places new focus on the U.S.-Africa relationship, Energy Capital & Power, in partnership with the African Energy Chamber’s U.S.-Africa Committee, will introduce American companies to African opportunities, promote greater investment into selected African nations, and advance an agenda of sustainable, long term investment in African energy and other sectors by U.S. organizations.

The U.S.-Africa Energy Forum is supported by champions of Africa in Washington, D.C. and Houston, and celebrates America’s vital role in Africa’s future prosperity. As partners, the United States and Africa are leaders in defining and shaping the global energy transition.

Key themes will include the energy transition, energy storage and battery metals, Africa’s place in global energy supply chains, gas as a vital fuel for the energy transition and development, the ongoing role of petroleum resources, and repositioning the U.S. as the primary partner of choice for African energy developers.

Join us in Washington and Houston for the U.S.-Africa events.
