(Image source: EnergyNet)The East Africa Energy and Infrastructure Summit (EAEIS) will take place in Kampala from the 6-8 February 2018, focusing on the opportunities to unlock investment in energy and infrastructure for regional growth and development

The summit is expected to unite regional governments from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Ethiopia, leading utility and regulatory companies from across the region, as well as international financiers, donor organisations and power developers. It will discuss the most significant energy and infrastructure projects being developed across the region and to explore solutions to attract foreign investors in East Africa.

Anna Gorzkowska, representative from EnergyNet, the organiser, commented, “The energy landscape in East Africa is evolving and diversifying. From the development of the East Africa crude oil pipeline and refinery project, to the large renewable energy projects such as the Bujagali Hydropower Project and Lake Turkana Wind Power Project, there has never been a more exciting time for the East African region.”

“There is interest not only in the larger infrastructure and energy projects, but also in the ever-developing off grid space,” Gorzkowska added.

The East Africa summit will be co-located with the second annual Africa Energy Forum: Off The Grid (AEF:OTG). AEF:OTG will focus on the topical issues concerning rolling out off-grid projects across Africa, presenting current project opportunities and building on the outcomes of the first successful off grid Summit, held in Dar es Salaam in December 2016.

Some of the companies to attend the forum include Power Africa, Engie, Fieldstone Africa, METKA, Nedbank, Shell New Energies, Wartsila, Nocart, Windlab and the African Trade Insurance Agency.
