12.00 BST (GMT +1), Online, Zoom

The Algerian authorities are targeting a total of 13GW of renewable power.

Join us on 5 June (12.00 BST/GMT+1) for a webinar that will examine this emerging opportunity – the context, the possibilities, the risks, and how to address them.

“If an Algerian contractor bids with a UK or European partner, they will definitely get a minimum of 80MW – that’s the minimum size of plant they’ve been contracting” – Algerian power sector expert.

The first set of tenders totalling 3GW were mostly won by Chinese and local Algerian contractors, but senior industry sources in Algiers are saying that this is only the beginning, and that the market remains open.

Many of the existing bidders are also looking for equipment suppliers, engineering consultants and other types of support.

Please note the date of the meeting has been moved to 5 June

African Energy chairman Jon Marks will be discussing this emerging opportunity with Algeria-based business consultancy Anzul’s director Oualid Khelifi

The discussion will be chaired by African Energy managing director John Hamilton.
