APUA is comprised of 56 active members in 46 African countries, 20 affiliate members and some associate and observer members in Africa and Europe.
APUA’s purpose is to promote the development and integration of the African electrical sector, the dissemination of best practices of management, the exchange of experience and know-how, mutualised training of staff, as well as joint exploitation of the energy resources based on a ‘win-win’ approach for all members.
