Now in its fourth year, AIX: Power and Renewables brings established and non-traditional investment sources (including private equity firms, family offices, foundations, institutional investors) together with project developers and other stakeholders for a frank discussion of the challenges facing investors along the electricity value chain.
Sponsored by DLA Piper and Globeleq, the meeting is held under the Chatham House Rule and structured around interactive panel-led sessions.
Co-produced by CbI’s African Energy, the 2017 programme highlights will include:
- DFI and private sector perspectives on the project lifecycle from concept and early stage development through to financial close and operation.
- Analysis of successful blended finance transactions in the power sector.
- Off-grid models and investment trends
- Frank discussion of political risk and governance issues affecting early stage development
- Key industry, country and regional snapshots
Limited to around 130 senior level participants drawn from DFIs, private investors, developers and government policymakers, AIX: Power & Renewables provides a rare opportunity for real engagement on the issues and challenges facing the development of power projects in Africa.
