The Energizing Africa Through Partnership Summit, sponsored by AEG International, will bring Carolina Energy Business Leaders together with African Dignitaries to engage in discussions on the business of providing reliable energy to the continent of Africa.

I was overwhelmed by the number of real and relevant connections AEG made with serious business people from the continent of Africa.

The Carolinas, believed to be the largest energy economy in the eastern United States, is emerging as a leader in sourcing energy services, products and project development facilitation in sub-Saharan Africa. On October 4th through 6th African and U.S. energy policy officials and executives engaged in the Africa – Carolinas energy trade will meet in Charlotte to learn about opportunities and develop partnerships with which to pursue a considerable range of projects. A predecessor conference held in 2014 in Charlotte and hosted by American Engineering Group (AEG) drew nearly 200 and since then trade has grown.

The Energizing Africa through Partnerships conference produced by E4 Carolinas and sponsored once again by AEG features his Excellency, Girma Birru, ambassador of Ethiopia to the United States and former Ethiopian Energy Minister, and Jim Rogers, University Fellow, Duke University Rubenstein Fellows Academy, and former Chairman & CEO of Duke Energy.

The second day of the conference will provide an intensive examination of African energy trade with panels on “Where and What?”, “Who and How?”, “How to Profit and Keep It” and case studies of Carolina companies successfully conducting African energy trade. The conference’s third day will consist of up to 14 thirty minute one on one sessions between parties interested in developing or expanding their African energy trade and African countries and companies and U.S. federal agencies and companies facilitating Africa Energy trade.

Tod Skinner, President of AEG, who has agreed to serve as a panelist to discuss the challenges AEG has overcome and their formula for success, had this to say of the 2014 event hosted by AEG:

“At a similar event in 2014, I was overwhelmed by the number of real and relevant connections AEG made with serious business people from the continent of Africa. Those, now established partnerships, continue to bear fruit. I am excited about expanding our company’s reach in this most important market.”

AEG specializes in products that improve efficiency and quality of life with a focus on water purification, renewable energy solutions and industrial technologies.
