Regional power summit begins in Lagos

19 November 2014, 14:47Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - More than 1 000 professionals have converged in Lagos for the West African Power Industry Convention (WAPIC).

Among other issues under discussion at the 11th edition of WAPIC is an update on the Nigerian power industry's privatisation and other opportunities in the regional energy sphere.

"It is wonderful to see such inspiring developments that are happening in this region and that Nigeria is taking such a pioneering role. The power sector is not looking back anymore but rather forging ahead and pushing boundaries. This bodes well for the future of the West African region," said says WAPIC Programme Director, Irene Ochem.

The long running conference and expo is enjoying overwhelming support from the industry. The global networking and telecommunications giant, Huawei, is the exclusive diamond sponsor for WAPIC.

Other leading industry names such as the Nigerian IPP Genesis Electricity Limited (GEL) and Aiteo Power Generation and Distribution Company are the platinum sponsors for the event.

Spintelligent, the South African-based trade exhibition and conference organiser, and the African office of Clarion Events Ltd, based in the United Kingdom are organising the event that ends on Thursday.
