Public Private Partnership (PPP): Financing, Projects & Contracts
21–24 August 2017
Johannesburg, South Africa

Africa needs new infrastructure. Roads, airports, schools, hospitals and housing: the list is enormous and growing. Yet severely limited budgets and deficits continue to prevent government at all levels from delivering the kinds of structural change that has always been needed.

Merely grasping the concepts of PPP does not do justice to our great responsibility of having an ownership in Africa’s future. We already know what we need to do, now is the time to really discover HOW.

This master class aims to do just that. Beginning with an in-depth understanding of how PPPs work, from financial, commercial, project & legal aspects, we seek to push our participants to innovate with real life case studies, group discussions and technical evaluation.

Utility Solar Summit
14-15 November 2017
Beirut, Lebanon

Delivering critical utility-scale solar PV projects in the Middle East

Advanced Conferences & Meetings (ACM) is launching the Utility Scale Solar Summit on 14-15 November 2017 in Beirut, which will focus on delivering critical utility-scale solar PV projects in the region.
The Utility Scale Solar Summit will explore different solar and wind solutions to encourage renewable energy production.
Excellent opportunities for the solar technology industry in Lebanon

  • The Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC) estimates the renewable energy market size to be between USD 300 to USD 400 Million in 2016 alone.
  • In January 2017, the Ministry of Energy and Water launched a call for Expression of Interest (EOI) to build Solar Photovoltaic (PV) farms in Lebanon as part of the National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP 2016 – 2020). The objective is to be nationally producing 767 ktoe of renewable energy in 2020, and given the high potential of development for solar PV farms in Lebanon, the NREAP targets 150 MW of PV farms installations.
  • Lebanon plans to bulk up on renewable-energy assets beyond just rooftop solar in a move that could wean reliance on fossil fuels and avoid blackouts.
  • Renewable energy in 2020 will represent 12 percent of the Lebanon’s total electricity production and this will lead to a drop in the oil bill.

The Utility Scale Solar Summit is the pivotal place for Middle Eastern, European and North Africa utilities to further develop new relationships to win business. The strategic programme will be led by utility solar companies from the region, international EPCs, O&Ms from the international community. Experts showcasing their products will experience tailored sessions that focus on business development and knowledge sharing of the latest industry trends.
