Rebranded forum shapes Central Africa energy’s future

Future Energy Central AfricaFrom ROSE SADOU in Yaounde, Cameroon
YAOUNDE, (CAJ News) – CENTRAL Africa’s prime energy summit will return to Cameroon in November under a new name and eager to build on the success of the last edition held last November in the region’s economic powerhouse.
Formerly the International Partnerships for African Development (iPAD) Cameroon Energy Infrastructure Forum, it returns later this year as the Future Energy Central Africa.
It will drive regional power growth within the Economic Community of Central African States (CEMAC) region, including countries such as Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo Brazzaville, Chad, Central African Republic and Gabon.
In November last year, the second edition of iPAD Cameroon gathered 180 high-level representatives from government, utilities, developers, investors, suppliers and finance institutions and 30 expert speakers and enjoyed the official support of the Cameroon Ministry of Energy and Water Resources.
“The power and energy landscape is changing throughout Africa” says iPAD Cameroon event director Elodie Delagneau.
Delagneau says the significant increase of small scale projects in the power and energy sector is highlighting the progress and improvement for economic growth and response to an increasing energy demand.
The traditional utility generation, transmission and distribution model, is increasingly being supported by smaller IPPs, smaller renewable projects, mini grids, smarter use of power through the new era of disruptive technologies, and is no longer the only solution to power supply.”
Future Energy Central Africa forms part of a series of leading power events that the well-known Cape Town-based trade exhibition and conference organiser, Spintelligent, has been hosting on the continent for up to 18 years.
These include African Utility Week, incorporation Energy Revolution Africa, Future Energy East Africa (previously EAPIC) Future Energy West Africa (previously WAPIC), Future Energy Nigeria and Future Energy Rwanda (previously iPAD Rwanda).
Spintelligent is part of Clarion Events Ltd, based in the United Kingdom.
