The forthcoming Future Energy Nigeria conference and exhibition taking place in Lagos next month has been endorsed by the Federal Ministry of Power. The event, in its 16th edition, will take place at the Eko Hotel in Lagos from November 12 to 13, 2019.

The upcoming Lagos event will present solutions for the power sector and connect power and energy professionals working together to advance a sustainable energy economy.

“Receiving the Federal Ministry of Power’s official endorsement and confidence is extremely valuable, not to mention motivating,” says Future Energy Nigeria’s business development director Ade Yesufu, “and we are proud to be the only event of its kind in Nigeria to receive official endorsement from the Federal Ministry of Power.”

“Nigeria is taking ownership of its power deficit and is taking charge of its energy future,” says Ade Yesufu, “we are looking forward to bringing together all the stakeholders across the entire power sector value chain.”

Ministry’s Endorsement Letter

“The Ministry is proud to be in partnership with the successful hosting of this year’s event,” says Mr Louis O.N. Edozien, the Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Power in an official letter to the organizers.

“The success of the last conference has given the Ministry the confidence to accord the upcoming event the necessary support that will avail stakeholders the opportunity to appreciate the gain recorded in the country’s power sector,” he adds.

Industry support

Leading industry partners and suppliers Jubaili Bros and Greenville LNG are early confirmed, returning gold and silver sponsors respectively. The exhibition is expected to feature some 70+ leading global and local technology and services providers for the power and energy industry, including country pavilions from South Africa and India.

Thermal power plant site visit

This year’s Future Energy Nigeria offers the unique opportunity again to go behind the scenes at a thermal power plant as part of a technical site visit tour at the Egbin Power Plant. An affiliate of the indigenous energy conglomerate, the Sahara Group, the company operates one of the largest thermal power plants in sub-Saharan Africa and contributes over 10% of the total electricity generated to the Nigerian National Grid. This makes it the heartbeat of power and the largest provider of electricity to Africa’s largest economy.

Utility CEO Forum: West Africa

During Future Energy Nigeria, the Utility CEO Forum: West Africa will also gather the region’s power leaders, including DisCos, GenCos and IPPs, for closed meetings that are by invitation only and facilitated under Chatham House Rules, to collaborate and focus on unique in-country challenges.

Future Energy Nigeria is organised by Spintelligent, a multi-award-winning Cape Town-based exhibition and conference producer across the continent in the infrastructure, energy and mining sectors. Other well-known events include African Utility Week, Future Energy East Africa, Nigeria Mining Week, East & Central Africa Mining Forum and DRC Mining Week. Spintelligent is part of the UK-based Clarion Events Group’s Clarion Energy Series, which runs over 40 events that cover the oil, gas, power and energy sectors, making it one of the group’s largest portfolios.

Meanwhile the event organisers have also confirmed that the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) will be an official supporting association of the event.
