Facing the future with confidence! Preparing the African Utility for the changing power paradigm at African Utility Week

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

From 14 – 17 March 2011, African Utility Week will provide training, networking and discussion platforms which demonstrate how utilities can prepare themselves for the changing utility landscape. With increased emphasis on smart technology and communications, renewable energy integration and diversified generation technologies, utilities are moving into a changing, exciting and challenging utility environment.

The event, taking place at the ICC in Cape Town, South Africa, provides un-missable networking opportunities! Meet key stakeholders from the whole power ecosystem, including other utilities, government stakeholders, regulators, power pools and vendors.

The exciting line up of speakers covers all of the key issues for the utility sector. The 7 break-out sessions offer opportunity for in-depth examination of some of the key issues affecting the power sector in Africa. The plenary session is going to be examining the role that an integrated resource plan could play in securing the water and power sectors in Africa. Panellists in this session include Jasper Oduor, Secretary General of the East African Power Pool and Elham Ibrahim, Commissioner of energy and Infrastructure from the African Union Commission.

Additional key experts who will be sharing insights, include

  • Metering, Billing/CRM Africa: Dr. Nicholas Smart-Yeboah, Director of Customer Service from the Electricity Company of Ghana, who will be sharing insights as to why the Ghanaian government took the step of installing pre-paid meters in the offices of ministries and other government agencies. Rudi Strubbe, Regional Vice President from Alcatel-Lucent will be speaking on smart grid ready AMI and Rens Bindeman, Managing Director of Revenue Investigations SA, will give practical steps for preparing a revenue protection strategy.

  • Smart Grids/T&D Africa: We welcome to African Utility Week Guido Bartels, Chairman of the GridWise Alliance, who will provide an idea of why utilities should consider transitioning to a smart grid. As a follow-up to that, Minnesh Bipath, Senior Manager: End Use and Infrastructure from Saneri, will discuss the regulatory requirements for smart grid integration. Integrating embedded generation into distribution networks is a topic which will be highlighted by Clinton Carter-Brown from Eskom.

  • Generation Africa: An overview of the South African Integrated Resource Plan will be presented by Omphi Aphane, Acting DG of Electricity, Nuclear and Clean Energy from the Department of Energy, SA. Anyone interested in this topic should not miss this presentation. Another interesting presentation is an evaluation of regulatory reform to boost private investment for generation in Africa by Mossad Elmissiry, Head of Bioenergy Policy, AU/Nepad (NPCA).

  • Renewable Energy Africa: We’ll also examine some project implementations, in particular Hopefield in the Western Cape and Lake Turkana in Kenya. Evans Kidero, CEO of Mumias Sugar in Kenya, will be sharing experiences with feed-in tariffs and co-generation and this will be interesting for anyone wanting to understand how the Kenyan experience has worked.

  • Large Power Users Forum: This is a vitally important issue in South Africa (and the rest of the continent) – Barry Bredenkamp, who is the General Operations Manager for the National Energy Efficiency Agency, will share the business case for energy efficiency with the audience while Valerie Geen from the National Business Initiative will discuss responses to the energy efficiency challenge. One of the key challenges to South Africa at the moment is the issue of energy security and this will be examined in detail with presentations from Kannan Lakmeeharan, Divisional Executive, System Operations and Planning from Eskom, and Leslie Rencontre, Director of Electricity Services from the City of Cape Town. Any large consumer of power should ensure they are in Cape Town during African Utility Week to get first hand insight of how to increase productivity while lowering energy costs.

Oil and gas is a dangerous industry: Organisations simply must step-up the standards

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Aberdeen, UK There has been no shortage of headlines in the last few months detailing the hazards to personnel of working in the Oil and Gas industry.  From increased reports of piracy to damaging fires, the impact of these news-making events is putting pressure on the industry to raise the standards and protect its people.  

These incidents cost organizations dearly in both human and financial terms. Case in point was the ruling back in November that saw both Shell and AMEC fined £150,000 each for a fatality at an offshore gas platform.  

Major incidents can have far reaching impacts that last well beyond the incident itself. Take for example the fallout from the Buncefield explosion in 2003; the millions in litigation is still being spent and it was announced just last month that criminal charges will be laid against the five companies involved.  

Finding practical solutions to avoid these types of devastating incidents is what will be on the table at an industry conference taking place in Aberdeen in February. HSE, Risk Management and Process Safety, will bring together leaders in the field to offer practical solutions that will help organizations save lives and limit downtime.

Co-Chaired by Prof. Dr. Christian Jochum, Director of the European Process Safety Centre and Lisabeth Froemling, Global Q/HSE Manager for Maersk, the conference will bring together over 16 industry experts including:

  Roald Gunnar Riise, Vice President HSE, StatoilHydro

  Andrew Smith,  Safety Engineer, SHELL

Martin Carter, Head of Engineering Governance, E.ON UK

Andrew Easterbrook, Head of Regulatory Compliance and Performance, Magnox

  Ken Brown, HSE Manager, OMV 

The conference runs 24 & 25 February 2009 in Aberdeen. Visit www.iqpc.com/uk/hse for more information.
