AEF is the marketplace for business opportunities in the African power
sector. Those African countries that have succeeded in attracting the most
investment are those that make the most use of the Africa Energy Forum to
meet the market.

AEF is held in Europe and provides easy access to the world’s major
investors, financiers, developers, and advisors.

The energy market breakthroughs and the first emerging African biofuel
production projects have on one hand boosted the bioenergy sectors, and on
the other hand revealed potential risks. The advantages of producing
bionergies locally should be enhanced compared to importing fuel products.
Risks are due to destabilization, relating to the vulnerability of rural
economies engaged in biofuel production and facing both international market
and agriculture/energy fluctuations. Unsteady agricultural and fuel prices
make biofuel competitiveness and profitability uncertain compared to crop
energies (biofuel vs edible oil). In fact, the recent fluctuations of the
global markets (agricultural and fuel products) have demonstrated their
interrelation which tends to impact on the economic performance of
biofuels.  In this unstable context, national authorities are aware that:

1. Though biofuels are not always considered cost effective in the short run,
they may represent an outstanding opportunity in terms of development in the
long run

2. Relevant measures should be implemented to avoid the potential risks of
emerging biofuel sectors. Thus, various countries and regional organizations
– ECOWAS and WAEMU – have implemented or are implementing laws and
policies in order to be equipped with efficient management and monitoring
tools.

With the benefit of hindsight, the assessment of biofuel production prospects
seems not only possible but also quite important. Projection and simulation
tools depending on technical breakthroughs, and plausible socio-economic
development scenarios are needed. So, this third edition of Biofuel
Conferences will focus on discussing technical, economic, social,
environmental and political prospects of biofuels for Africa ... read more
