Description

Africa is a continent with a rich natural resources, yet Africa is struggling to meet its energy needs. In Sub-Saharan Africa only 290 million out of 915 million people live with electricity. That leaves 625 million people has no access to electricity (IEA’s Africa Energy Outlook 2014).

The low electrification rate is caused by a number of factors such as insufficient generation and transmission facilities, feedstock unavailability, and obsolete facilities. This is often made worse by the low tariff collections which affects the financial standing of utilities. In order to overcome these challenges there are needs to increase investment for infrastructure and to implement best practices in regional tariff policy setting, power pool arrangements/agreements and electricity market structuring.

In this summit we will be gathering the senior officials from the public sectors and C-Level Executives from the private sectors to discuss about both challenges and opportunities in Africa power sector. We hope that this gathering will be a catalyst for electricity market reform in many countries and regions. This conference should also create opportunities for deals to be closed and therefore decreasing the infrastructure fund gap that is experience by every public sector in Africa.

This conference is designed to address the three key challenges that the energy sector face in Africa face:

Building Regional Electricity Market
The structuring of electricity market is key in building a competitive and profitable environment in power sector. Key components such as economics and pricing of electricity will be one of our emphasis in this conference.

Financing Gap and Funding
With growth in electricity demand, the need for investment also grow. This conference will address the financing issues that many players in power sector face. We hope that by the end of this conference deals will be closed and new projects will be launched.

Feedstock Security
