SMEC Africa participated in the Future Energy East Africa Conference held in Nairobi’s Kenyatta International Conference Centre from 12 – 13 September.
The conference is the largest such regional event and provides a platform for public and private stakeholders to engage in discussions around the future of the East African energy sector. The conference was attended by over 1 600 visitors and boasted 68 exhibitors. Future Energy East Africa has been running for 20 years and was attended by visitors from South Africa, Rwanda, Uganda, Mozambique, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Kenya.
“Future Energy was a strategic event for us to attend”, stated Dinesh Bhaga, SMEC South Africa Business Development Manager, Power & Energy. “At least a third of visitors we met with were not previously known to us. We have made many valuable contacts which will help us unlock multi-disciplinary consulting opportunities for SMEC in the renewable and traditional power generation sectors”.
