In the wake of the Powering Africa conference in Livingstone in June this year we are holding an event to follow up on what was discussed and what the future of power in Zambia might look like over the next ten years. We will hear from Mr Oscar Kalumiana, Director of Energy at the Ministry of Energy about government policies and strategies to increase our power capacity: aspects such as where are we now, what is planned to come on stream over the next 10 years, what is expected to be provided by government and private sector initiatives, the state of PPPs in the energy sector, opportunities for private investment, the use of renewable and non-renewable sources and what will load-shedding look like over the same period. We will also have speakers from the private sector involved in the provision of energy about how they see developments and their experiences in developing their own initiatives. These speakers include Sipho Phiri from Western Power, Dr Sixtus Mulenga representing Aggreko and Emmy Kumwenda, Stanchart’s Director Local Corporates (Standard Chartered Bank is a financier in the Power Africa initiative).
This event takes place on 29 September at 18:00 at the Taj Pamodzi hotel. There will be a cash bar.
Please note that after 18 months of free entry we are now charging non-members to attend BCC speaker events: K100 per head payable at the door, as a small contribution to running costs.
