Press Release - Business Strategies for Renewable Energy


The African continent has massive potential to use renewable energy sources. With most of its potential still untapped, power companies and investors have unique opportunities in these markets. The growing interest is being fuelled by political directives to meet environmental and sustainability targets. The internal rates of return (IRR) can also match and exceed traditional investments made by private equity.

The continent could become a gold mine for renewable energy due to abundant solar and wind resources. But roadblocks to clean energy worldwide are amplified throughout the troubled regions of Africa - financial resources are thin and infrastructure is often unreliable.

It is for this reason that Spintelligent has produced an event to address these challenges head on. Our Business Strategies for Renewable Energy training workshop will attract high performers from key utilities across East, West and Southern Africa, offering the ideal context to train, develop and benchmark with leaders in the industry.

We aim to facilitate growth in the sector through these premium learning opportunities and we look forward to ushering you into an era of sustained growth and heightened performance.
