About African Power and Energy Elites 2022

The 2022 edition of African Power & Energy Elites is taking a bold step in line with market developments. The yearbook celebrates projects delivering progress within four categories – utility-scale generation, off-grid & micro applications, smart solutions and the start-up corner – while recognising the distinguished individuals making a remarkable impact in power, energy and water. This prestigious publication gives companies, projects and individuals a year of limelight to commemorate success and the look to the future.


The African Power & Energy Elites publication and the African Power, Energy and Water Industry Awards have aligned with a single nomination and selection process across a set of complementary categories.


The selected Leadership and Project category nominations that feature in the Yearbook will automatically go forward for judging for the African Power, Energy and Water Industry Awards, which is part of the annual Enlit Africa (formerly African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa) event.
