The speaker line-up for the Utility CEO Forum at Future Energy East Africa is growing as the event in Nairobi nears.

Being held on 12-13 September, 12 utility and IPP CEOs and representatives have been revealed for key discussions on the financial viability of the sector, PR strategies and collaborations between utilities and IPPs.

It is part of a series of four exclusive regional platforms which allows utility and industry leaders to discuss and compare utilities’ financial viability, utility reform, the new energy revolution and general topics that impact all African utilities such as the regional challenges or cross border co-operation.
