The Powering East Africa meeting was held between 27-29th March 2015 in Nairobi, Kenya as a forum to push the issue of power transmission and distribution higher on the region's political agenda.
Lack of adequate and effective transmission and distribution networks will limit East Africa's ability to meet the demands of a growing population and slow the pace of foreign direct investment, trade and infrastructure development.
The meeting took a critical look at the current deadlock to power generation, examining how it can be overcome. 100 key decision makers pivotal to the discussions were invited to this closed forum.
