Nairobi - Local firms are set to benefit from free technical workshops that will be offered during the East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC) to be held in Nairobi in early September.
According to organizers, the summit would offer two days of practical workshops on energy efficiency, plant maintenance and clean energy solutions for the utility and large power users.
“EAPIC is the longest running power conference and expo in East Africa because we continually strive to remain a relevant and practical gathering by the industry, for the industry, at a time when resources are under the spotlight,” said Irene Ochem, EAPIC Programme Director.
“Therefore the EAPIC technical workshop programme offers practical solutions, lessons learnt from case studies and problem-solving mechanisms to assist power companies and utilities in improving their efficiency and productivity.”
The high-level conference and expo will gather more than 1000 attendees along with exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies, products and services across the entire energy value chain from generation, transmission, distribution, services and renewable energy solutions.
EAPIC spokesperson, Irene Ochem, said the workshops were suitable for project managers, electrical contractors/engineers, network operators, operations managers, energy managers, planning and technical managers, facility managers and maintenance managers; as well as business development managers, large power users and consultants.
She added there was ample opportunity in the East African sub-region for hydro, geothermal, wind and solar power to reduce fossil fuel use and power plant operating costs.
“Renewable energy will therefore continue to play an important and a significant role in the region for the next decades,” she added.
