Nairobi - Siemens has partnered as a platinum sponsor with the 16th annual East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC) scheduled for next month in Nairobi.
The conference and expo will gather more than 1 000 attendees along with exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies, products and services across the entire energy value chain from generation, transmission, distribution and services.
Rachel Lutwama, Head of Emerging Energy Markets Sales at Siemens, said the African energy market had been one of the most diversified energy resource mixes to support a cohesive and sustainable power supply programmer ranging from the conventional hater, coal, and geothermal, to natural gas, oil, wind, solar and biomass feed stocks.
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.
“Like elsewhere in the world, the region is undergoing an energy revolution. Siemens is excited about the region’s energy expansion prospects and continues to invest in order to deliver high quality products and solutions, at a competitive price advantage to its clients and partners,” added Lutes.
EAPIC will once again gather the region’s leading power utilities, investors and technology and service providers as the event returns to Nearby from 3-4 September for its 16th edition.
Kenya utilities 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 Tango, UEGCL, UMEME, EEPCO and many others will also be present again this year.
