Registration: Abdou Fall - President COPERES, Daniel Maggs CEO VMG, Matthew Hewitson President VMG

West Africa Power Summit Gala Dinner


Opening Remarks Aziz Fall Director of Promotion and Cooperation ANER

WAFPOW18 began just like last year with a closed door meeting regrouping executives from the private sector operating in the ECOWAS region power sector as well officials from government institutions and utilities from the sub region. The discussion was centered on the main institutional and financial challenges facing the energy and power sector of the sub region. There were also participants from Europe, United States and Asia and the Middle East. The topics that drew most exchanges were the difficulties of ensuring attractive ROI due to weak infrastructures and reliable financial processes. The meeting also shed light on the important strides Nigeria has accomplished in developing the solar industry with significant investments in the pipeline. The evening cocktail was marked by the welcome speech of the Secretary General of SENELEC who noted that the energy mix policy aims among other things the reduction of dependence on oil through the diversification of sources of electricity production, with a greater share of renewable energies.

Following him, the Minister of Energy and Renewable Energy Development recalled the energy policy for renewable energy. He informed that with the current projects, by 2020, a renewable energy production capacity of 200 MW will be reached. However, the households must be accompanied for the equipment in individual solar systems, for this purpose, a partnership will have to be knotted with the order of the architects and the organizations of the engineers in civil engineering for the installation of solar water heaters in the houses. In order to promote the development of renewable energies, solar street lighting must be generalized, and an awareness campaign on the use of bioenergy should also be conducted. The opening panel offered a compelling line up with SENELEC, PEACOCK INVESTMENTS GROUP, ABB where the topic touched on the financial gap governments and project developers have to face in the energy sector.

Finance Panel Discussion Delegates

Some propositions focus on the need to empower African investors to be more proactive in taking part in the financing of energy projects in the ECOWAS region. Others were more in line with improving the business environment to make it more conducive to foreign investment. There was a great deal of experience sharing in terms of financial settings between the panelists and the audience and the main concerns expressed by the strain of the sovereign guarantee and looking for ways to address it. Following the panel sessions were a series of keynote presentations from vendors, developers, and utilities from the ECOWAS region and beyond.


Networking Cocktail and BBQ

SENELEC provided the WAFPOW18 with some insightful information about its multiple objectives for the next decade including production, grid extension, process automation, preparation for the transition from gas to power. Senegal recently discovered important offshore oil and gas reserves, and a whole host of anticipative measures and strategic reorientations are being contemplated within Senelec to prepare for the coming production of oil & gas in Senegal. A strong emphasis is expected on areas such improvement of infrastructure norms, innovation and modernization and capacity building of the personnel. This edition was also the occasion for the participants to take part in many substantial B2B meetings during which potential partnerships and deals were discussed. In conclusion, it is fair to say that the second edition of WAFPOW was a great success that built on the previous one as well as the great commitment and engagement of even more entities operating the ECOWAS region and beyond. It is clear that this summit hosted at the Radisson Blu of Dakar is gradually positioning itself to be the reference in the field and the 3rd edition in 2019 will be even greater.

Summit 2019

FP OW

West Africa

12th - 14th MARCH Sea Plaza Dakar, Senegal

WWW.WAFPOWER.COM

Africa’s Number 1 Regional Power Event “Meeting the technological, financial and regulatory challenges to ECOWAS energy ambitions” In March 2019, Dakar, Senegal will play host to West Africa’s No.1 Business to Business Green Power event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the ECOWAS region. West Africa has a population of 362 million which is set to grow by 2.2% per year as of 2016, this gives the region a ranking of No.2 most populous by sub-region on the continent. The economic growth for the region is expected to be 4.6% (2015 – 2016) compared to 6% (2010 – 2014) mainly attributed to the decline in oil price, but as we all know, the main inhibitor to growth on the African continent is down to the access to reliable and cost effective power supply for homes and businesses. West Africa has one of the fastest growing populations in the world, yet electrification rates are among the lowest – only 42% of the population on average has access. This figure drops to 8% in rural areas. Blackouts adversely affect business and stifle economic growth. According to figures from the World Bank, load shedding costs the continent 2.1% of its GDP on average each year. As with all of West Africa’s aging oil-based generation fleet is not sufficient to support the targeted growth need. However, the declining cost of clean technologies brings new opportunities to improve energy supply. In 2012, West Africa’s 15 heads of state pledged to increase the share of renewable energy in the region’s overall electricity mix to roughly 10% in 2020 and 19% by 2030, through both grid and off-grid projects. The targets translate to an additional 2.4GW of renewable electricity capacity by 2020 and 7.6GW by 2030, according to the UN. In real terms demand targets can be met by increasing the energy generation mix and removing reliance on oil, with which the commodity price fluctuates hugely as we have seen over the last 3 years, and adding more green power generation capacity in the form of gas, hydro, solar, wind and bio mass. This is exactly what the West African Power Summit is looking to assist with: ‘Meeting the technological, financial and regulatory challenges to ECOWAS energy ambitions’ The West Africa Power Summit hosted by Vale Media Group, the number 1 Sub-Saharan African B2B events company, will provide a platform to address some key challenges of investments for green energy power initiatives, developing new green power infrastructure, integrating green power assets to ageing grid infrastructure, regional power pooling and much more. We will bring together Ministries of Power & Energy, State Power providers, Public – Private partnerships (PPP), Independent Power Producers (IPP’s) and key solution providers to tackle some of the most pressing issues within the African Power industry. In the ECOWAS region power companies will be looking toward the strategy for increased power capacity:
