To drive Nigeria’s sustainable power supply, the rebranded Power Nigeria, now Nigeria Energy, will hold the eighth edition of Energy Conference and Exhibition from September 20-22, 2022 at the Landmark Centre, Lagos, Nigeria. The rebranding in 2020 was to reflect the evolving nature of producing electricity and delivering energy security.

   
Ade Yesufu, Exhibition Manager – Energy portfolio – MEA, Informa Markets, said the event would also feature some innovative power companies, from conventional thermal power generation to transmission and distribution (T&D) as well as renewable energy and energy storage.
 
“Nigeria Energy will provide a leadership platform for key government stakeholders and private sector companies as well as investors to connect, share ideas and knowledge and find solutions to meet Nigeria’s growing energy needs.
   
“The conference will provide a blueprint for Nigeria’s power sector in the coming years, to not only improve access to electricity, but also drive economic growth and create jobs across West Africa,” Yesufu said.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Energy Conference Steering Committee was formed to address the current challenges and opportunities within the African power market.
 
Key discussion themes at the conference will include: “Building capacity: Establishing a strategic framework and regulatory framework to support the growth of power production in Nigeria; Finance and investments: Developing procurement models and payment mechanisms to attract regional and international capital among others.

“The exhibition sees support from the industry with SkipperSeil Limited, a global leader in power and infrastructure, confirmed as the Main Sponsor, Simba Group as the Platinum Sponsor, Tranos as the Gold Sponsor, while Eaton, Lucy Electric, and Jubaili Bros are confirmed as Silver Sponsors.”
