The 16th Future Energy Nigeria (formerly known as the West African Power Industry Convention – WAPIC) with the support of the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, and Eko Electricity Distribution Company, had the privilege of hosting many of the country’s leading energy decision-makers from 12 - 13 November 2019 at the Eko Hotel & Suites Convention Centre, Lagos, Nigeria.
The Future Energy Nigeria is recognised as being a distinctive gathering of stakeholders within the power value-chain which includes governments, power generation companies, transmission and distribution companies, off-takers, developers, investors, equipment manufacturers and providers, technology providers, EPCs, legal and consulting firms all with a shared goal of supporting the on-going implementation of finding lasting solutions to Nigeria’s energy challenges.
Transforming the Nigerian power landscape
Nigeria’s potential to become one of the world’s largest economies will remain just an aspiration without the electricity required to pursue aggressive industrialisation. This will necessitate solution-based projects and initiatives geared towards overcoming the crisis identified in the sector with a view to fast-tracking the delivery of constant electricity in the region. The growing complexities of the problems confronting the power sector, provides opportunities for doing business in Nigeria. From emerging technologies within the metering space, data management and gas to power infrastructure, in correlation with the attraction and retention of investment in the sector will be imperative to transform the Nigerian power sector.
Nigeria is determined to meet its demands and contribute more to the West African power pool. Huge investment opportunities exist in the Nigerian electricity supply industry, as local and international investors are encouraged to take advantage of the vast opportunities in the sector, such as:
- Expansion of existing facilities in generation, transmission and distribution
- Manufacturing of wires, cables, transformers and other auxiliary equipment
- Building new integrated power plants (IPPs)
- Expansion of existing transmission lines
- Production and distribution of metering devices
- Provision of operations and maintenance services
