He adds: “Spain is a huge investor in South Africa’s renewable energy programme and across Africa in the gas sectors, so we’re delighted with the turnout from African CEO and Ministers.”

Some 800 African ministers, heads of utilities, regulators and international energy companies will attend the Africa Energy Forum to address pressing issues concerning Africa’s power sector, including partnerships, finance, investment and renewables.

Bruno continues: “The Africa Energy Forum brings stakeholders from the continent to meet investors and to showcase the opportunities in their respective countries. The policy shifts needed and the practical steps required to produce the necessary power for growth constitute the essence of the discussions at this year’s Africa Energy Forum. We’re particularly excited about the Libya and Nigeria investment briefings, with decision makers from both countries making considerable contributions.”

“Enormous potential for investment”
The Nigeria Spotlight panel discussion will look at the progress of the country’s privatisation programme and present updates on privatised generation and transmission companies.

Says Africa Energy Forum’s Bruno Cockburn: “Panellists include the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Power, Mr. Reynolds Beks Dagogo-Jack, the Chairman of the Niger Delta Power Holding Company, Mr James Olotu, as well as Dr Sam Amadi, Chairman and CEO of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, who will contribute significantly. To have such a senior delegation from across the sector participate is unusual in Europe.”

According to Dr. Amadi: “The Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) has enormous potential for investment as demonstrated by the high level of investors participating in the ongoing privatisation exercise. Over 300 expressions of interest were received by the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) for all the successor GENCOs and DISCOs.”

He continues: “Nigeria being the most populous country in Africa with 160-million people and a growth rate of 6.99% as at the 4th quarter of 2012, makes it abundantly clear that there is a huge market for electricity in the country. Investment opportunities exist in all sectors of the NESI including gas supply/transportation, generation, transmission, distribution, metering and vending platforms.”

Spotlight on Libya
The Libya Spotlight session will offer experts an in-depth analysis of Libya’s power sector, including what frameworks are required to promote private investment and look at relevant lessons from other privatisation programmes. The Libyan Minister for Electricity and Renewable Energy, H.E. Dr. Ali Mihirig, is part of the panel discussion.

Other confirmed African ministers that will attend Africa Energy Forum include:
• H.E. Salvador Namburete, Minister for Energy, Mozambique
• H.E. Dipuo Peters, Minister of Energy, South Africa
• H.E. Alemayehu Tegenu, Minister of Water & Energy, Ethiopia
