Siemens company has partnered as a platinum sponsor with the 16th annual East African Power Industry Convention or EAPIC that is taking place from 3-4 September in Nairobi, Kenya.

The conference and expo will gather more than 1000 attendees along with exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies, products and services across the entire energy value chain from generation,transmission, distribution and services.

Rachel Lutwama, head of Emerging Energy Markets Sales at Siemens said “The East African energy market has one of the most diversified energy resource mixes to support a cohesive and sustainable power supply program ranging from the conventional hydro, coal, and geothermal, to natural gas, oil, wind, solar and biomass feed stocks.”

Last year, the East Africa Community revealed a $64-billion spending plan on joint power projects in the region for the next 25 years to generate eight times more power than is currently available.

Lutwama adds: “like elsewhere in the world, the region is undergoing an energy revolution. Siemens is excited about the region’s energy expansion prospects and continues to invest in order to deliver high quality products and solutions, at a competitive price advantage to its clients and partners.”

EAPIC will once again gather the region’s leading power utilities, investors and technology and service providers as the event returns to Nairobi from 3-4 September for its 16th edition. Kenyan utilities KENGEN, Kenya Power, KETRACO and the Ministries of Energy are key partners again in what is the longest running power conference and expo in East Africa. Large East African utilities such as Tanesco, UEGCL, UMEME, EEPCO and many more will also be present again this year.

“Siemens is one of the long standing sponsors of this regional event and has been since the launch of EAPIC forum back in 1998 and will continue to utilize this platform to engage with policy makers, utilities, IPPs, EPCs, financial institutions and other industry service providers to debate issues and suggest solutions that will mould and shape the future of the regional energy industry in the years to come.” Lutwama said.
