At a time when energy has never been more topical and crucial to the African continent’s long-term economic growth prosperity, the EB roundtable will seek to provide an interactive platform for learning and discussion.
Featuring voices from all of the energy industry’s key stakeholders, including government, regulators, energy companies and investors, the session will ask the critical questions on how to plan against risk and implement a structured risk strategy.
Background information: The management of political and commercial risks in energy projects, in particular in infrastructure, is a hotly debated and researched subject. The reason is clear: no project can go forward without proper risk allocation amongst the parties involved, and risk – whether real or perceived – is the most important factor preventing projects from attracting investors.
Who should attend: Policy makers, investors, regulators, development practitioners, chief financial officers, consultants, representatives of the finance sector.
