PR Newswire
CAPE TOWN, South Africa, July 4, 2012
-- Frost & Sullivan Host a Complimentary Web Conference
CAPE TOWN, South Africa
,
July 4, 2012
/PRNewswire/ -- With the latest supply of
power grids, power generation efficiency and movement toward energy-
efficient buildings,
Africa
is at the brink of a green energy revolution – or is it
really? The Frost & Sullivan Energy and Power Systems business unit will be
hosting a complimentary web conference that will be contextualising the
direction and scale of energy investment in
Africa
. The web conference will
take place on
10 July 2012
, at
15:00 CAT
(
14:00 BST
).
Various countries have introduced feed-in tariffs and, in addition, the need for
supplementary power in remote locations is on the increase. At the same time,
the costs of RE technologies have been decreasing, becoming ever more
competitive. Many companies are bracing themselves for grid parity pricing –
and will hail an era of rapid green technology expansion.
"The electricity industry in
Africa
is increasingly competitive as a result of
attractive feed-in tariffs and infrastructure development on the continent,"
notes Frost & Sullivan's Business Unit Leader for Energy and Power Cornelis van
der Waal. "The awareness of sustainable development has become a feature of
project development and there is a need for balance between economic and
environmental sustainability."
Green technology, however, is not always the best solution for a developing
economy – and hence; policy makers have to be careful in their allocation of
green energy when industrial expansion is required. The question remains –
what is best for the continent – going green or seeking a least cost solution.
This web conference will look at the opportunities currently presented and the
expected long term energy mix for the Dark Continent.
Highlights of the briefing will also include a discussion around feed-in tariffs and
green technology deployment in
Africa
, policy developments and the impact on
the continent and identifying main entry barriers and level of competition. The
briefing will also be beneficial to energy strategists, policy makers, OEM's,
project developers and financing companies for all types of energy projects in
Africa
.
