Invest in Africa’s Next Generation of Energy Leaders


EnergyNet’s YES is back this June in Nairobi, Kenya! Youth Energy Summit launched last year at Africa Energy Forum in Brussels. YES is creating a platform and network for early career professionals, entrepreneurs, students and educators to boost the skills, connections and business readiness of a new generation of African energy Leaders.

The Youth Energy Summit (YES!) has ambitious goals to accelerate access to reliable energy on the African continent – however, we cannot do this alone. Our expertise exist in convening the biggest actors in the energy sector to actualise their business ambitions through events such as the Africa Energy Forum. This time, we are doing things differently.

YES! is partnering with corporates, foundations, NGOs, universities, and other initiatives across the globe.

YES! will support hundreds of Africans in public and private sector roles learn how to develop and prosper, with both soft and technical skills, and the opportunity to meet with peers and senior influencers from across the continent.

Working with partner organisations, YES! will amplify access to the many complementary initiatives that are becoming available across the continent. YES! is actively seeking partners as we scale up.
