The aim of the Summit is to build on the discussions from the previous years meetings, increasing knowledge of how Private Sector investment can assist National Utilities in hitting certain targets for delivery of sustainable, reliable energy to the citizen and enterprise within the Sub-Saharan African Region.
The format of the Summit is very different to usual large conferences, the aim is to create action and development, therefore we limit the number of delegates to 100 and design a format that encourages interaction and exploration of potential Public/Private Partnerships. The delegates represent the Stakeholder spectrum, which ensures that partnerships can be established during the Summit.
You will have the opportunity to either play an active role as a speaker during one of the Panel Sessions or alternatively you will have a seat in the VIP Audience where you can still make active contributions during the Q&A times. These sessions provide Senior Level Officials the opportunity to investigate areas for improvement and importantly allow them to use their experience to highlight the best methods of solution.
The key feature of the Summit is the quality of the delegates; we work with our Summit partners to select the most relevant delegates. If you wish to suggest a contact or colleague to be considered for invitation, please send us the contact details and we will review with our partners before providing a formal invitation.
