EXHIBITION INFO BELOW:
Power & Energy Africa is all set to venture into the Ethiopian market after several successful editions in Kenya and Tanzania. The first edition of Power & Energy Africa in Ethiopia will provide an international business platform by enabling global investment opportunities.
Ethiopia has one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The country has been registering a double-digit growth for the last twelve consecutive years. Located in the region of the Horn of Africa, Ethiopia is the 2nd most populated country in Africa. The Government of Ethiopia (GoE), under its latest Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP), envisions transitioning from a developing country to a middle-income country by 2025. Although Ethiopia is endowed with abundant renewable energy resources and has a potential to generate over 60,000 megawatts (MW) of electric power from hydroelectric, wind, solar and geothermal sources, currently it only has approximately 2,300 MW of installed generation capacity to serve a population of over 95 million people.
The Ethiopian government’s pledge to spend 20 billion dollars on the power development programme in the second generation of the Growth & Transformation Plan (GTP-II), from 2015 to 2020, consistent with the country’s annual spending track record of two billion dollars for the past three years is another renewed commitment to the energy industry.
Power & Energy Africa will bring you exhibitors from over 22 countries, with over hundreds of products, equipment and machinery on display. Exhibiting at the largest power event in the industry will allow you to showcase your products and services to the industry’s largest gathering of qualified decision-makers.
