After 6 years of great success, Power and Energy Africa is returning to Nairobi, Kenya for the 7th time and this time the event is going to be bigger than ever.

Trevor Daniels, Exhibition Manager of Expogroup “The power sector of Kenya as a whole is well-governed and has a yearly increase in participation by private actors in generation. Also, Kenya has remarkable renewable resources, as evidenced by its reputation as one of the lowest cost developers of geothermal power in the world. Kenya has also aggressively pursued increasing their connections, having nearly doubled electricity access from 25% to 46% of households in 4 years. This upstream of events has led to a great amount investment flowing in from foreign companies as well as local companies in the same sector and we feel with the support and encouragement of the government the country can reach new heights. We would like to see ourselves as being part of this mission by providing local businesses in the power and energy industry a platform to connect with businesses all around the world at one place and time. Kenya is all set to welcome the best global Power and Energy industrialists to Power and Energy Kenya 2018”

The show has not only witnessed a 45% increase in exhibitors as well as visitor attendance over the past two years but has also grown right alongside of the exhibitors, building the trust that is required to ensure the permanence of the event. Expogroup announced the launch of Power & Energy and Solar Africa in Rwanda and Ethiopia on the occasion of their 20th anniversary in Africa.

POWER & ENERGY and SOLAR AFRICA has been one of East Africa’s fastest growing sectors. To meet demands, the 2017 events will feature a Conference like never before dedicated to Power & Energy and Solar Sector with renowned speakers from different backgrounds of the Industry.

The recent revival in the region’s Power & Energy and Solar sector is expected to increase the demand for electricity in East Africa to grow at approximately 5.3 % each year until 2020. To meet these requirements, generation capacity would have to increase by 37.7 % in Uganda, 96.4 % in Kenya, 75.3 % in Tanzania and 115 % in Rwanda. The governments, in conjunction with development partners, are preparing to build a more favorable business environment to facilitate growth.

East Africa has the potential for a diverse range of energy sources, most of these sources are untapped, including coal, geothermal energy, biomass, solar power and wind and there is therefore a high reliance on hydropower and Solar energy.

It is crucial for global investors to understand the unique opportunities and challenges of the individual countries within the region. Government focus on energy development, will provide a platform for both private and public sector participants to contribute. The private sector is definitely interested in investing; therefore POWER & ENERGY and SOLAR AFRICA provides the platform to showcase finest companies in business and to reap the benefits.
