Tanzania is set to host the Powering Africa Investment Conference billed to take place at the Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam, The Kilimanjaro hotel from 3-4 December 2015.
So far, 37 companies from the private sector have confirmed their attendance including Tanzania Investment Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Mitsubishi Corporation, Citibank Tanzania Limited, BVI Consulting, Liquefied NG Tanzania Limited, Statoil and Sunfunder.
The focus is on topics such as Tanzania’s commitment to energy reform, sector growth and gas development, procurement strategies for Tanzania’s public sector companies and the importance of electricity for agriculture and captive power industries.
Following the recent $5 million worth of funding from the International Finance Corporation (IFC) enabling Tanzania to explore mini-grid power capability, the programme will also look at the options for delivering renewable energy to Tanzania and the opportunities for solar, wind, geothermal and hydro power development.
