Emelly Mutambatsere, Senior Research Economist, African Development Bank, Tunisia comments, “North Africa is currently leading in terms of installed capacity while South Africa is poised to be the fastest growing market based on the number of prospective investors in the sector”
You must also recognise East Africa, with northern Kenya’s Lake Turkana set to be the site of Africa’s largest wind farm. Project plans amount to a total of 365 wind turbines to be built there, generating enough renewable, grid-connected electrical power to meet more than 20% of the country’s electricity needs.
Carlo Van Wageningen, Chairman, Lake Turkana Wind Project, Kenya comments, “Here you can produce wind power at an interesting cost, without subsidies, unlike the case in Europe.”
At Clean Power Africa – Wind 2013, taking place from 14 - 15 May in the tourism capital of South Africa - Cape Town - you will get to spend quality time with these international wind experts who will provide you with invaluable updates on Kenya's Lake Turkana as well as Eskom’s 100 MW wind farm and involve you in exclusive discussion panels and high level engagement opportunities.
