Over the past 14 years, the East African Power Industry Convention has become the number one conference and exhibition in East Africa. EAPIC is one of the longest running regional power events and the only one in East Africa.
The must-attend event has grown to include multi-track programmes and an exhibition that features free technical workshops. EAPIC has become an essential part of the power sector; it offers a platform and encourages discussions around the pertinent challenges in the sector, but more importantly as a way of finding solutions.
Global giants GE and Siemens are among the major international brands sponsoring the conference this year, an indication of its influence in the industry.
EAPIC facilitates an opportunity for regional interactions between countries, addresses power challenges and identifies opportunities. The organisers collaborate with the key ministries, utilities, regulators, consultants, developers and vendors to create content that stimulates dialogue and encourages cross-border participation.
EAPIC is being held in Kenya because the country has shown it is full of potential as one of the top investment destinations in the region. Kenya has a progressive infrastructure, is full of investment opportunities and has power project developments.
The audience of EAPIC are power professionals from the government and private sector, regulators, utilities, developers, EPC contractors, consultants, vendors and IPPs from junior level to CEO. The event gives them an opportunity to learn together, network and the chance to exchange ideas.
This year’s EAPIC will have strong ministerial participation from the region, including Hon. Minister Davis Chirchir who will be delivering the keynote address. The power programme also offers a dedicated geothermal two-day track with interactive panel discussion. Free technical workshops will be offered on the exhibition floor. The Large Power Users Forum and Finance workshops will give delegates an in-depth workshop before the beginning of the conference. There will be plenty of networking opportunities at cocktail functions and dinner.
EAPIC is proud to be an integral part in the development of the power sector in East Africa.
