Host utility interview   

Andre de Ruyter, Group Chief Executive, Eskom, South Africa

Back to business: Where are the opportunities?

A running theme across 2020 discussions is the unlocking of opportunities in the African power and energy sector. We look at how Africa is transitioning and the associated business opportunities. The conversation will acknowledge Andre de Ruyter’s interview and address:

  • How is the rise in off-grid and/or mini-grid solutions changing Africa’s energy access? How has Africa’s energy access been impacted by COVID-19?
  • Private sector participation models in the electricity transmission sector: how are these evolving and what does the next generation model look like?
  • What is the future for independent power producers and generation as a whole?
