As part of efforts to boost the nation’s power sector and in view of the recent Parliamentary Act, empowering states to generate their own electricity, the 2023 powerSolution Conference has been scheduled to hold in Lagos between July 19 and 20, 2023.
Briefing news men in Lagos, the Chief Executive Officer of PowerCap Limited, Mr Biodun Ogunleye, said the conference, with the theme: “Sustainable Resolution of the Gaps in the Power Sector, will among other things, examine:
*Right operating Environment: state governments and creation of new markets.
*Power generation: making more capacity available.
*Transmission and Distribution: maintaining network infrastructure to enhance sustainable grid.
*Retailing: Challenges with creating a wholesome experience for customers while reducing losses.
*Energy Consumption and Management: cases of loss reduction implementation.
*Digitalisation: optimising KYC projects for sustainable loss reduction and more accurate energy accounting.
*Feedstock: overcoming gas constraints/inhibitors.
*Financing: financing project in the sector etc.
The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu is expected to be the Special Guest and Keynote Speaker while other notable personalities and experts in the power sectors will make presentations on various issues.
According to Mr Ogunleye, the two day event, unlike others, will focus strictly on electricity, power and other issues impairing achievements in the sector.
“It will also bring participants together and become a platform for cross fertilisation of ideas, sharing and learning to ensure that Nigeria is able to improve its energy access and duration of stable power supply to meet the needs of homes, industries and other users”, he said.
The powerSolution Conference started as far back as early 2000, with some held within and outside the country.
