“EAPIC is the longest running power conference and expo in East Africa because we continually strive to remain a relevant and practical gathering by the industry, for the industry, at a time when resources are under the spotlight,” says Irene Ochem, EAPIC programme director. “Therefore the EAPIC technical workshop programme offers practical solutions, lessons learnt from case studies and problem-solving mechanisms to assist power companies and utilities in improving their efficiency and productivity.”

She continues: “we want to invite the industry to come and learn and get their hands dirty and learn about the latest industry developments from the experts that we have brought here to share their best practice and experience. There are more than 10 sessions to choose from.”

The high-level conference and expo will gather more than 1000 attendees along with exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies, products and services across the entire energy value chain from generation, transmission, distribution, services and renewable energy solutions. The event is taking place from 3-4 September at the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi.

“Ample opportunity in the East African sub-region”
EAPIC’s Irene Ochem says the free, technical workshops are suitable for: project managers, electrical contractors/engineers, network operators, operations managers, energy managers, planning and technical managers, facility managers and maintenance managers; as well as business development managers, large power users and consultants.

She adds: “there is ample opportunity in the East African sub-region for hydro, geothermal, wind and solar power to reduce fossil fuel use and power plant operating costs. Renewable energy will therefore continue to play an important and a significant role in the region for the next decades.”

According to Irene Ochem it is important for the large energy users and manufacturers to understand the tools and methods of knowing and reducing energy consumption. She expands: “participants in the technical workshops will understand tested methods of measuring and fixing organisational energy wastes in order to reduce spend and boost their profitability.”
