Nairobi readies for power industry convention

27 August 2014, 19:03

Nairobi - Preparations for the East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC) are gathering momentum with confirmation more than 1 000 participants expected for annual event in Nairobi.

The event is scheduled for 3-4 September as the region prepares for massive investments in the power sector.

The summit will bring together the region’s leading power utilities, investors, technology and service providers, as well as offer free practical workshops to help the industry and large power users improve efficiency and productivity.

Kenyan utilities and the Ministries of Energy are key partners again in what is the 16th edition of the longest running power conference and expo in East Africa.

The summit presents massive opportunities to all the stakeholders in the region’s energy sector, said EAPIC Conference Director, Irene Ochem.

“It also shows a marked rise in confidence that the region has in itself but also by investors in the East African power market and is a welcome catalyst in ensuring a stable, future power supply that will drive the regional economy forward.

"EAPIC will gather industry professionals and regulators to seek out solutions on how the region is to meet these ambitious generation capacity goals,” she added.

Last year, the East Africa Community revealed a $64-billion dollar spending plan on joint power projects in the region for the next 25 years to generate eight times more power than is currently available.
