The third edition of the iPAD Rwanda Energy Infrastructure Forum returns to Kigali in November with the continued strong, official support of the state power utility REG, the Rwandan Ministry of Infrastructure as well as the Rwandan Development Board.
Rwandan Minister of Infrastructure James Musoni will once again deliver the welcome address during the opening session of iPAD Rwanda on 1 November.
Continued confidence to endorse forum
“The continuing success of the event has provided in the national utility group and the Government of Rwanda the continued confidence to endorse the upcoming edition” says Jean Bosco Mugiraneza, CEO of the Rwanda Energy Group (REG).
He adds: “The two-day forum provides market entry for international as well as local investors, financiers, project developers, advisors, technology and solution providers to join together in dynamic interactive discussions to develop the sector efficiently and effectively, setting clear strategies and public private partnerships for success.”
According to Mugiraneza, “The networking opportunities provided for international and local solution providers to engage in credible business consortiums designed to deliver a viable investment and delivery plan to progress Rwanda’s energy mandate and assorted infrastructure projects avails our continuing support.”
Supported by case studies, best practice, macro scene-setting and focused table sessions, iPAD Rwanda will showcase the progress made and the work still to be undertaken to deliver on Rwanda’s development agenda of Vision 2020, which is to achieve 70% electrification connectivity by 2018 and 563MW generation capacity.
High-level government officials will also be on hand to explain the incentives that are in place for developers.
