Power, Finance and Energy Investors To Meet in Abuja By October

There will be a meeting between the Federal Government of Nigeria, leading development finance institutions, and heads of Nigeria’s most accomplished energy companies in October.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at the EnergyNet’s Powering Africa: Nigeria Investment Summit in Abuja from 12-14 October 2016.

According to reports, over 50 public and private sector decision makers will address 300 power developers and investors to discuss the driving factors behind power development in Nigeria.

The investment summit is said to underpin Nigeria as a hub for regional gas development as well as an important market for clean and renewable energy.

Key themes of the conference will include how to diversify Nigeria’s energy mix, regulation policy to promote international investment in renewables, and examining Nigeria’s off grid energy market, that is, promoting energy access for everyone.

Managing Director of EnergyNet, Simon Gosling, said, “For 24 years EnergyNet has supported governments across the continent playing an advisory role helping policy makers meet the very best private sector investors. Our role is not unique; however our approach is as individual as a thumbprint, highlighted by the trust the World Bank, Power Africa, IFC, FMO, Proparco, DFID, AfDB and many more who place their trust in EnergyNet, which supports our position as a market-shaper when it comes to global energy development.”

The meeting is officially endorsed by the Energy Commission of Nigeria, the Transmission Company of Nigeria and the National Power Training Institute of Nigeria.
