Attend the 2018 Future Energy Nigeria: WAPIC Conference & Expo

13-14 November 2018 | Eko Hotel


Practical solutions that will have an immediate impact on the performance of utilities and large power users in Nigeria – this is what will be on offer at the upcoming Future Energy Nigeria where renewable, mini grids and Gas-to-Power experts will share their success stories and case studies.

The 15th edition of Future Energy Nigeria will take place in Lagos from 13-14 November and the new and free-to-attend Generation Knowledge Hub on the expo floor, is aimed at assisting the local power producers and large power consumers to address the country’s insufficient generation capacity. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance. The strategic conference on Revenue Cycle Management & Metering is focused on assisting utilities to increase their efficiency.

Future Energy Nigeria has evolved from the West African Power Industry Convention (WAPIC). This energy conference and expo addresses the Nigerian power sector challenges through industry connectivity and creative solutions. A country going through a tough economic cycle, compounded by a struggling energy sector, it is now that the platform of a meeting place to engage industry stakeholders keen to represent the sector is more important than ever.

This refreshed project will continue to drive collaboration, networking, solutions and positive results for a sector that begins to emerge from crisis. The only industry meeting point that discusses, debates and provides answers to the future development of the sector. Delivering a conference arena for consultative content, an exhibition platform for trade deals and networking for business growth. Future Energy Nigeria is the dedicated professional project that Nigeria needs to support its ascent from its current challenges.

Utility CEO Forum: Nigeria
Co-located to Future Energy Energy, is the Utility CEO Forum: Nigeria which is part of a pan-African series of high-level meetings that give CEOs the opportunity to step away from the ‘business as usual’ and access top class leadership and strategic support.

The Utility CEO Forums are closed-door boardroom meetings, by invitation only and facilitated under Chatham House Rules. The meetings pave the way for transformation by discussing issues of strategic planning and in Lagos the Forum will support Nigeria’s power leaders (including Discos, Gencos and IPPs) to collaborate and focus on unique in-country challenges.
