Is there money in African hydropower?

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Updates on Inga, Ingula, Kafue Gorge and more

Funding and financing hydropower projects in Africa will be a special focus during the annual Hydropower Africa in Johannesburg in August which will be opened by the South African Energy minister Elizabeth Dipuo Peters.Some of the world’s top hydropower experts will discuss the future of hydropower electricity generation in Africa during what is the only hydropower conference and exhibition on the continent where all the major stakeholders gather.

Potential of hydropower

There is an enormous demand for information on the finance and funding of hydropower projects in Africa says Nicolaas Loretz, Hydropower Africa project director, especially given that the potential for hydro generation is great and that only 10% of the continent’s potential has been realised. This is the ideal platform to give impetus to project implementation for small and large hydro projects

Nicolaas Loretz continues: We therefore have a special focus on investment opportunities with specialists from the World Bank and the African Development Bank and case studies from Zambia and Mozambique as part of our programme.

Minister’s vision

We are delighted that Minister Dipuo Peters will share her vision with us, says Loretz, “particularly to hear her views regarding the promotion of sustainable development, regional integration, water and energy security, and poverty eradication in Africa.

During a visit to Korea recently, the minister said South Africa can produce more than 43,000 megawatts of electricity but wants to increase this by using renewable energy sources like wind, solar and hydropower.

    Expo Summit 2010: Nothing Get Bigger Than This

    Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

    Expo Summit 2010 is all set to scale new heights this year around. After receiving an overwhelming response and 224 participants last year, Expo Summit 2010 is back with a bang. Scheduled to be held from June 4-5 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi, this two- day conference intends to bring in more representation of the International stakeholders from the world exhibition fraternity. The highlight of the event is its encouraging number of participants. We are pleased to reveal that more than 300 participants ranging from exhibition organizers, booth fabricators, logistics companies and service providers from across the globe would be present at the Expo Summit 2010. What is most heartening is the fact that international associations from world over have expressed their keenness to be associated with this high profile event. Expo Summit 2010 is perhaps the only medium through which service providers are able to tap the entire Indian Exhibition Industry extensively that is growing at a very encouraging rate.

    Undoubtedly, India holds a commanding position in the list of big and influential international organisers across the world. However, there are quite a few issues that need to be addressed in order to make India the next launch pad for Asia. While, the exhibition trade, globally had advanced to a larger extent, India continues to deal with issues related to stiff government policies and inappropriate venues. In order to ensure that India is indeed the potential hub of exhibitions across the world, it’s very important to adopt a unified stand over various issues of concern and match up the difference that the West has laid for us.

    With Expo Summit’ 09, a foundation stone was laid for the Indian Exhibition Industry to build a strong ground that is recognised as an industry. The need to take a forward step in unifying the entire sector and to adopt a unified stand before the policy makers was felt. When Expo Summit’ 09 was taking shape, the industry felt that it would represent its strength and challenges before the policy makers sitting on the other side of the table. However, by the end of the summit, all the industry stake holders, including the policy makers and autonomous bodies came to the consensus that none of them were actually on the other side. Rather, they all were a part of a unique cycle and agreed to adopt a collective approach in the right direction to maintain the graph of augmentation, moving upwards! It was very heartening to witness the formal ‘discussion’ being transformed into a healthy ‘dialogue’! The challenge before Expo Summit, 2010 now is to start the second chapter of this dialogue!

    Expo Summit 2010 will reinstate its objective to provide the required platform to the exhibition fraternity to stand together. To strengthen this pledge, Indian Exhibition Industry Association (IEIA) has also extended its unconditional support to the event. “The Indian exhibition industry has surely benefitted from the platform of Expo Summit being offered by Manch Communications. The association finds a definite synergy with the objective behind this event and will extend all possible support to the organizers to make it a grand success� says Anil Arora, Hon’ Secretary, IEIA.

    “We have started promoting the event in all possible ways to attract more international speakers and organizers who are eyeing on India to enter and set up their shops. We got an excellent response at UFI Asia Open seminar at Taipei with confirmations from industry stalwarts like Paul Woodward, Michael Duck and Mark Cochrane to speak at the summit. We would also attend UFI Middle East Open Seminar in Bahrain later this month to attract more delegates from that part of the world. We are committed to deliver a prolific experience to all Indian delegates in the summit� says Anuj Mathur, Director, Manch Communications Pvt. Ltd.

    Since its formal launch, Expo Summit, 2010 is drawing overwhelming response from various segments of exhibition industry. Some of the international organizations have begun to show keen interest in the event and have also expressed their willingness to be part of it! Litmus Meroform and RE Rogers India have extended their support in the capacity of Foundation Partners of the event. Roder HTS Hocker, the world leader in the tensile structures and Siddhartha Logistics, the new age logistics solution provider have come forward in the support of the event as Associate Sponsors. The event is well promoted by several online and print media covering the trade. Indiamart.com, goingtomeet.com, Events Venues and Avenues are contributing towards the event’s promotional activities.

    “We invite all industry stakeholders to come and attend the two day conference and go back with a motivational approach towards their businesses. Indian companies will surely get a chance to boost their business by venturing with their international counterparts� concluded Anuj Mathur.

    Experience the first ever truly global mHealth conference

    Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

    We are proud to introduce our inaugural mHealth 2010 conference and exhibition, the world’s leading independent event for mobile health. See key representatives from across the globe, come together for the first time under one roof.

    mHealth is going to be a two day global interactive event with opening keynote plenary sessions. It will source key speakers from across the entire mobile health ecosystem and will become a platform for discussion, debate and networking. The conference will focus on launching and monetising mobile healthcare services as well as looking at real-life case studies and deployments. mHealth 2010 brings together leading players from across the entire mobile healthcare ecosystem. It will feature 35+ top executive presentations and global case studies. The conference will facilitate the global development of mobile healthcare and explore ways in which universal healthcare can be delivered with the aid of mobile technology.

    2010 is THE year for mhealth

    2010 has been dubbed as THE year for mobile healthcare, and it has certainly got off to a great start with Continua Health Alliance announcing the first end-to-end connected health solution. More and more mHealth programmes are set to launch and compete for market share across the world.

    The opportunity in terms of revenue generation is enormous. ABI research estimates that there will be 15 million medical devices by 2012 – innovating from legacy mobile units, through to radio pills and smart band aids/plasters. The Wi-Fi enabled healthcare product market will be worth an estimated $4.9 billion in 2014. New product launches continue to be announced on a regular basis, but live programmes still remain a minority, meaning that many MNOs and healthcare institutions are yet to finalise their mHealth strategies and won’t have decided upon their favoured technology partners.

    That is where mHealth 2010 comes in! If you want to meet over 200 mHealth project leaders at an event explicitly designed to help them select technology partners, then you need to join us at the inaugural Global mHealth Conference & Expo on the 13th and 15th September in Dubai, in The Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach.

    Join hundreds of others to take advantage of this unique event

    First ever truly global mHealth conference with presentations and attendees spanning from Japan to Peru

    Ecosystem: Meet all of the key stakeholders in mHealth: mobile operators, systems integrators, devise manufactures, healthcare professionals, governments, NGOs, application and software developers

    Dynamic: less formal presentations with more interactive panel discussions, Q&A sessions, and a live application shoot-out

    Independent: Your hosts, Clarion Conferences don’s represent mobile network operators, hospitals, software or any other stakeholder. We have no software of consultancy services to sell

    With over 200 attendees, global case studies, key decision makers, innovative formats and built-in networking time, this is a conference that you cannot afford to miss!
