The Association of Energy Professionals Eastern Africa (AEPEA) is the second local chapter of The Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), US. AEE is the world’s leading professional body of certified energy professionals with over 17,000 members across the globe, and was founded in 1977 as a non-profit Professional Association with the mission to promote the scientific and educational interests of those engaged in the energy industry and to foster action for sustainable development.

The Association of Energy Professionals Eastern Africa (AEPEA) was granted chapter status by the AEE on 30th September 2014 and was duly registered as an Association in Kenya on 14th December 2014. It was later officially launched at the Strathmore Business School (SBS) in a ceremony presided over by Eng. Joseph Njoroge, the Principal Secretary Ministry of Energy & Petroleum and His Excellency the Deputy Ambassador of Germany to Kenya Mr. Michael Derus on  21st March 2016.

Currently, the association has over 150 members drawn from the Public and Private sectors, Academia and the Development sectors.

To sustain its operations in East African region, the AEE has (through its South African Chapter) been offering professional accreditation services in such areas as Certified Energy Manager (CEM) and Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP). In Kenya this is done in close collaboration with the Kenya Association of Manufacturers and the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum. So far about one hundred and five energy engineers have been trained and accredited as CEMs. The Association has counted on the strong support of GIZ (through a 3 years PPP) and the Strathmore Energy Research Centre (SERC) from its inception.

The offices of AEPEA are at the Strathmore University in the Strathmore Energy Research Centre Warehouse, and for the time being it shares a P.O. Box Number with the University.
