29 August 2014, 14:29

Nairobi - The East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC)’s Conference Director, Irene Ochem, said next week’s gathering will enable professionals and stakeholders explore ways of enabling the region meet its generation capacity goals.


More than 1 000 delegates are expected to gather in Nairobi next Wednesday and Thursday for the EAPIC, which comes as the region prepares for massive investments in the power sector.


Ochem said that East Africa Community’s plan to spend $64 billion on joint power projects in the region for the next 25 years to generate eight times more power presents massive opportunities to all the stakeholders in the region’s energy sector.


“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.”


Apart from bringing together the region’s leading power utilities, investors, technology and service providers, the event also offers free practical workshops to help the industry and large power users improve efficiency and productivity.


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

Large East African utilities from the region will also participate.
