An estimated 50% of African utilities are in a position to only cover basic operating costs, making it a challenge to operate efficiently and maintain existing assets let alone make the investments necessary to expand access.

Senior Energy Specialist, Chris Trimble, will be unpacking the status of financial viability in sub-Saharan Africa and examples from across the continent of how costs can be reduced and smart revenues increased to close the financial gaps we see today.
