Angola: New energy companies take shape

Issue 295 - 27 Feb 2015 | 2 minute read
The government has appointed boards for the new power companies formed late last year to replace Empresa Nacional de Electricidade (ENE) and Empresa de Distribuição de Electricidade de Luanda, enabling them to start work in earnest. A cabinet meeting on 6 February approved the appointments, which will pave the way for hoped-for private investment in the sector. The Empresa Nacional de Produção de Electricidade (Prodel) generation company will be headed by António Fernandes Rodrigues Belsa da Costa, former board chairman of state water company Empresa Pública da Aguas (Epal), while former ENE directors Euclides Morais de Brito and Júlio Capitango will be in charge of thermal generation and hydropower, respectively.
