Over the past 6 years Africa’s power sector has seen marked improvement with the emergence of large scale power projects across technologies. Most notable has been the success of South Africa’s renewable energy independent power producer programme. We have also seen an increased appetite for power projects on the continent. In 2015 Nigeria saw the financial close of the $900m, 450MW Azura-Edo gas power project as well as a release of draft regulations of the country’s renewable energy programme. In 2016 Zambia announced the winners of its scaling solar programme.
That being said however the continent still faces a large power deficit with only 2 out of 3 people in Sub-Saharan Africa having access to electricity. Through the Africa Power Roundtable conference we have created a platform through which government, developers and investors have the opportunity to find creative solutions to ensure that more projects reach commercial operation.
Join us on the 1st and 2nd of February 2017 in Johannesburg South Africa at the 5th Annual Africa Power Roundtable conference where we have created a platform through which government, developers and investors have the opportunity to find creative solutions to securing Africa’s energy future.
