27 – 30 June 2017 | Accra, Ghana

Harnessing Energy, Information and Communications Technology for Affordable Electrification of Africa

The IEEE PES PowerAfrica Conference 2017 is coming to Accra, Ghana, June 27-30, 2017. IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) offers this premier international forum on advances in the development and deployment of technologies and business models that are realizing Africa’s energy future.

This year’s conference will emphasize the emerging opportunities to leverage ICT to build solutions for both on-grid and off-grid systems across the continent that are economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable. The role of current and future regulations, investment frameworks and policies will also be addressed.

The IEEE PES PowerAfrica Conference 2017 invites professionals and researchers with engineering, finance, and social science backgrounds from companies, R&D organizations, academic, government and financial institutions to submit papers on their innovative ideas, research and development, application experience and expertise in all relevant areas of specialization including: new technologies for generation, distribution and demand management; off-grid and grid-connected microgrid design, protection and control; socio-economic, policy and financial analysis; and applications of data science and communications technology to all areas of energy system planning and operations.

The technical program is designed to highlight innovations and challenges facing the power and energy industry in Africa. The Conference will provide attendees with practical, solution-oriented topics, including case studies and lessons learned, via a diversified technical program consisting of tutorials/workshops, keynote/plenary speeches, poster and oral presentations. The conference theme covers African applications or relevant international experience in the following four key topic areas:
