Pressing African power industry issues that will be addressed include partnerships, finance, investment and renewable energy.

“As a pioneer in developing wind and solar energy plants, it is no surprise that some of the biggest developers of renewable energy projects in Africa are Spanish”, says Simon Gosling, MD of EnergyNet, organisers of the Africa Energy Forum. “We are delighted that Spain's leading international firms including Iberdrola, Grupo Isolux Corsan, Abengoa, Gas Natural and Spanish exhibitors Casa Africa and Himoinsa are able to welcome the record number of participants travelling to this year's Forum, including 150 participants from South Africa and 40 from Kenya.”

The 15th edition of Africa Energy Forum has tripled in size since it was last held in Barcelona in 2005, testament according to Gosling of the “growing optimism in the African power market. Indeed, the attraction of Barcelona combined with evidence that private power projects are finally proving viable, create the ideal environment for a stimulating, productive and enjoyable Forum.”

Aggreko Lifetime achievement award
During the event the outgoing CEO of KenGen, Edward Njoroge, will be presented with the Aggreko Lifetime Achievement Award. KenGen is Kenya’s leading power generator. Aggreko, a global industry leader in temporary power rentals, is the title sponsor of the Africa Energy Forum and has been active in Africa for more than 15 years, operating large scale power-projects in countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia, Gabon, Uganda, Angola, Ivory Coast and Tanzania.

Says Simon Gosling: “we know the value Aggreko has provided to KenGen over the years in delivering immediate and much needed power solutions. From the moment we presented the idea for an award to Aggreko they were immediately behind it, and have been integral in making this recognition of such an incredible career possible. Mr. Njoroge’s achievements are exceptional.”

• H.E. Dr. Ali Mihirig, Minister for Electricity and Renewable Energy, Libya
