The WEC African regional activities focus on energy issues, such as energy access, energy efficiency, energy policies, energy scenarios, performance of power generating plants, large scale hydro power, renewable energy, energy interconnectivity, cross-border and trans-continental power transmission network.

To facilitate those activities, the WEC community in the region has developed working level relationships with African Union Commission (AUC), African Energy Commission (AFREC), and Association of Power Utilities of Africa (APUA, or formerly UPDEA). WEC also works closely with the African Development Bank in the region.

The Africa Energy Indaba is the WEC’s official regional forum, which is held in Johannesburg, South Africa, every February. The event hosts WEC’s regional workshops looking at energy access, energy trilemma and energy scenarios studies along with highlighting the key energy issues and priorities in the region.
