Nairobi to host key power summit
09 June 2014, 10:24
Nairobi - The region’s leading power utilities, investors and technology service providers will gather in Nairobi later this year for the East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC).
The annual event is scheduled for September 3-4.
Kenyan utilities, including KENGEN, Kenya Power, KETRACO and the Ministries of Energy, are key partners again in what is the longest running power conference and expo in East Africa.
Large East African utilities such as Tanesco, UEGCL, UMEME, EEPCO and many more will also be present again this year.
EAPIC is expected to attract more than 1 000 attendees along with exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies, products and services.
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.
“This 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,” said EAPIC director Claire O’Connell.
