The Africa Disruptors session at AIX Power and Renewables meeting in London on 14 November 2018 will examine investment in technologies and other ‘disruptors’ that are changing the African energy landscape. This session will ask four key questions:
- what is the real, potential and hypothetical impact of storage?
- how are disruptive technologies including, solar pumps for agriculture, off-grid solar for industry, blockchain and PAYG systems impacting the electricity value chain?
- is the growth in embedded power and other independent solutions signalling a revolution driving industrial growth?
- can mining and other industries develop sufficient generation and mini-grids to create a sustainable regional development? Do solar-diesel hybrid plants have long-term potential. How should best practices (including negotiating PPAs) be consolidated?
Confirmed panellists include:
- Giuseppe Artizzu, Executive Director, Global Strategy, ENGIEeps
- Richard Hallas, Founder, Support Green Communities
- Kudra Kalema, Managing Partner, CP-EM Uganda
- Margot Le Guen, Senior Business Developer, Total Eren
- Romain Py, Executive Head: Transactions, AIIM
