Hydropower Africa 2012 is the largest hydropower event of its kind in Africa boasting over 600 visitors from across the globe. It looks at the current status and potential for hydropower development in Africaâ€™s major basins as well as non-conventional methods in optimising hydropower for Africa' s remote/rural areas. Organising financial support and attracting investment for projects and smart grid technologies for the acceleration and adoption of clean, distributed energy generation projects will be examined through case studies and interactive discussion forums. Engineering challenges and solutions, contracting as well as skills retention and development best practices will be presented and discussed.
The event is aimed at project developers, consultants, regulators and utilities who are either developing the business case for micro, small or large hydro or who have already hydro infrastructure in place and are looking at how to operate and maintain their assets.
