African Utility Week continues as the nexus for sourcing new business opportunities no matter your sector, thus enabling more space for dedicated sectors, with growth planned in generation, technologies and T&D/metering.
Why a dedicated generation area?
The population of sub-Saharan Africa is expected to increase by 80% between 2015 and 2040. Electricity generation will have to almost double to maintain per capita provision.
Major power generation projects will be required in order to meet this demand; this will need an investment of $90 billion annually from DFIs, banks and investment companies such as: The World Bank, African Development Bank, African Union, GE and Endeavor Energy.
