Djibouti Infrastructure & Renewable Energy Investment Conference
Le 25 novembre 2015
As part of its series of business development events in the East African region, Euroconvention Global is organizing with the Saudi Arabia Solar Industry Association, the Djibouti Infrastructure & Renewable Energy Investment Conference that will take place in Djibouti City on November 25, 2015.
Renewable Energy sector is recognized as a national priority and plays an important role in Djibouti's strategy for economic development. Diversifying and reducing dependence on imported oil products, increasing the share of renewable energy and bio fuels will make Djibouti the first African nation using 100% green energy. Djibouti is looking into power generation options that are more affordable and reliable: it has significant geothermal, wind and solar energy resources that can be further developed. The country is undertaking a number of measures to support the implementation of renewable energy, including a long-term energy plan, strengthening the legal and regulatory framework and developing a clear rural electrification strategy. Djibouti has embarked on several mega infrastructure projects in energy, water, port and transport. Construction of multi-purpose and specialized ports, new airports, huge logistics facilities, free zones, and crude oil terminal are some of the key expansion plans.
Conference topics will include:
- Infrastructure Expansion – Port, Free Zone, Transport and Logistics, Pipelines, Utilities
- Power Sector Potential: A regional Energy Hub going “Renewable”
Among the speakers will participate:
- Senior Officials from governments
- International Financial Institutions (IFIs)
- Legal and consulting firms
- PPP advisors
- Private sector firms from the energy and infrastructure industry
