Powering Africa: Nigeria 2016
12 - 14 October 2016
ERM is the Lead Sustainability Partner at 2016’s Powering Africa: Nigeria
In the last 12 months Nigeria’s electricity sector has been transformed with the arrival of Minister Babatunde Fashola, Minister for Power, Works and Housing, who has set out clearly his intention to break down the barriers to investment in the country’s energy sector. Following President Buhari’s lead to tackle bottlenecks and inefficiencies the Minister has embarked on a strategy to get the distribution companies working, providing support and regular interactions with the privately held companies that have worked tirelessly to build the electricity backbone of Nigeria.
The Powering Africa: Nigeria 2016 meeting will provide the opportunity for the private sector to realign strategy with the new vision for the future of power in Nigeria.
Participants will hear directly from both the private and public sector as the industry defines the country's unique requirements for power acquisition and outlines the vast investment potential of this market.
Participants will debate solutions to the challenges of raising finance, opportunities for investors to participate in and support the growing industry, and the procurement trends which could realise the country’s vision of a stable and sufficient power supply.
Forward-looking and proactive, the Powering Africa: Nigeria meeting focuses on engaging the private sector to accelerate growth in the power sector, free bottlenecks in capital access and drive electrification.
