Some 500 regional power industry and utility experts are expected to attend the 9th edition of WAPIC 2012 with the theme “Preparing the West African power industry for private sector participation”.

WAPIC to focus on power industry reform
Says WAPIC programme director Stephanie Roy: “This year’s edition will focus on power industry reform in Nigeria, utility performance for the industrial sector, finding solutions for metering, renewable energy and how to attract private sector investment. Power is at the heart of driving the manufacturing sector in Nigeria and a reformed power industry will create enormous impetus for the country to prosper.”

She continues: “we are honoured to have the Honourable Hajiya Zainab Ibrahim-Kuchi, Minister of State for Power of Nigeria at WAPIC because it illustrates shows the commitment of the Nigerian government to the power sector, particularly as this sector is currently undergoing reform and power assets are changing ownership.”

Nigeria a booming market
