Zambia Renewable Energy & Power Infrastructure Investors Conference
May 17, 2017 @ 08:00 - 17:00
Dear ZARENA members,
We are very pleased to announce our participation as Supporting Organization of the – Zambia Renewable Energy & Power Infrastructure Investors Conference. This is the next event organized by Euroconvention Global in sub-Saharan Africa. The conference will take place in Lusaka (Zambia) on the 17th of May 2017 at the InterContinental Hotel Lusaka.
Zambia faces an energy – particularly in electricity – supply gap in meeting the growing needs of its people. The government is seeking, notably through the development of renewable energy sources and technologies, new ways to substantially increase its energy supply to meet this growing demand and extend the national grid to rural populations.
Renewable energy sources are indeed abundant in Zambia. Hydropower (both small and large) has been so far the major contributor to the country’s electricity generation. However, a vast array of renewables – including solar, solid biogas, biodiesel, ethanol, and waste to energy – are now being added to the energy mix and are key to the country’s enormous potential for increased power production.
Several initiatives aimed at creating a more conducive environment for renewable energy and energy efficiency have been launched by the government. The Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), the investment company wholly owned by the Zambian government, along with IFC are currently in Round 2 of their Scaling Solar Zambia program, aimed at exploring the development of large-scale solar projects in the country. Following the first successful tender for up to 100 Megawatts (MW), Round 2 is currently under way with 150MW – 250MW up for grabs, and with Round 3 for the remaining 250MW – 350MW to be announced shortly for a total of 600 MW target. Requests for prequalification of round 2, utility-scale solar photovoltaic IPP projects in Zambia, are due on 5 May 2017.
