Technical Workshops

FREE Knowledge Hub Programme Tracks

Energy Revolution Africa

A programme is dedicated to community scale power generation for rural Africa.  This year we are devoting a full day to small scale hydro, exploring the potential on the African continent, financing models, successful case studies and technology.  Attend this hub to expand your hydropower footprint.

POWERGEN Africa

The hub is dedicated to increasing Africa’s generation capacity gap.  One day will give a practical guide to business owners about how they can go off grid, generate their own electricity and become independent of utilities. The programme will also help power utilities solve generation maintenance and operational challenges. 

Smart Energy

Smart Energy doesn’t have to mean massive amounts of technology or investment. Join us for three days of practical discussion and insight into smart energy in Africa - what works, what doesn’t, smart meters, sensors, data and analytics and much more. Attend this hub to bring the best smart energy options to your customers.

Water

A one day Master Class - The NBF presents an Accredited Training Provider which will be delivering the World Bank developed Certified PPP Professional (CP3P) training course. Attendees will be presented with an interactive workshop style training, centred on making use of PPPs as an alternative procurement methodology. 

Transmission & Distribution

This hub will give you practical solutions to reduce technical losses, IT/OT convergence, securing renewable energy on to the grid and minimise the impact of load shedding on substations and transformers.
