“The East African market is a growing and attractive market”

A Women in Power Luncheon, a German Country Pavilion with energy solution providers and dozens of high-level utility representatives are just some of the highlights at the upcoming Future Energy East Africa that returns to Nairobi from 17-18 September.

The 21st edition of the event will focus on the enormous progress that has been made in the region in terms of access to energy and the increasingly important role of mini and off-grid projects to meet targets.

The Acting CEO of Kenya Power, Jared Otieno; the Principal Secretary of Kenya’s Ministry of Energy, Dr Joseph Njoroge; and Mrs Rebecca Miano, CEO of KenGen, are leading a veritable who’s who of the region’s utilities that will be speaking at the event and attending sessions. More than 12 utility CEOs from Kenya, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Malawi and Rwanda have already confirmed their attendance at the Utility CEO Forum: East Africa that is taking place during Future Energy East Africa at the KICC.

The largest and longest running regional power conference and exhibition in East Africa, it boasts both a strategic conference, a large trade exhibition and free-to-attend practical sessions in the Knowledge Hubs. Attendees will receive six PDUs (Professional Development Units) in total for attending either the conference sessions or Knowledge Hubs.

German Country Pavilion
For the first time, the event also welcomes an official German Country Pavilion to the KICC in Nairobi. “The East African market is a growing and attractive market for German suppliers of energy solutions” says Kerstin Maaß, Deputy Head of Coordination Office ‘German Energy Solutions Initiative’ (GESI) and Advisor to the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

She adds: “the GESI supports German SMEs tapping into foreign markets by facilitating business partnerships and know-how exchange and has been focusing on the East African market for years. Over the past few years, the importance of the market has been increasing and more and more German companies are establishing offices in Kenya.”

“We are really looking forward to Future Energy East Africa” says Ms Maaß. “All of the German companies on our stand are energy solution providers: we have manufacturers of solar home systems including storage solutions, project developer in wind, solar and biogas, manufacturer of water turbines, a constructor of agricultural and co-fermentation plants, and a provider of digital measurement systems.”

Women in Power Luncheon
“The Future Energy East Africa conference is also proud to host this year’s highly anticipated Women in Power Luncheon” says event director Dominique de Lauwere. She continues: “the event aims to celebrate the role that women play in the power sectors and the great contributions they make in shaping Africa’s future.” The Luncheon is in partnership with KenGen’s Pink Energy Leadership institute, a woman development programme that provides women an avenue to participate fully in mega energy projects.
