Financing Power & Water Projects

Sign me up!

Translating the potential of Africa into economic success depends on the ability of stakeholders to work together to develop the continent’s huge energy capacity (in particular power & water). Securing the level of finance needed to fund the overhaul of Africa’s utilities infrastructure network is absolutely paramount (estimates suggest there is $40bn a year infrastructure funding gap deficit). 

Policymakers across the continent are looking to the private sector to play an enhanced role in providing the funding for capital-intensive infrastructure projects. As a result financing models underpinning project development are changing rapidly. This roundtable will focus on the appropriate financing mechanisms (in particular PPPs) to procure and develop major power & water projects and services.

Kigali is the obvious location for this event. Rwanda’s landmark achievement in developing one of Africa’s first infra-related PPP projects (Kigali Bulk Water Supply Project) is an example which other will follow

The agenda for the event will address a range of issues:

  • Reviewing East Africa’s future power & water needs
  • How do you make PPPs work for efficient power & water supply?
  • Outlining investor appetite to fund transformative projects in power & water
  • Borrowers outline future funding requirements  
  • Utility sector as an enabler for local content in Rwanda
