Once in a year, a group of interesting and impactful people from Africa gathers for the week-long experience — which attendees have described as “The rise in the extractive energy industries in Africa is contributing to the expansion of road and rail corridors to move high-volume minerals such as iron and coal. These corridors and other energy related infrastructure, such as pipelines and port facilities, are expanding into rural and other sparsely populated areas, with accompanying growth in settlements and associated environmental impacts.”
Considering the small size of many of the economies of African countries, regional energy integration is extremely important to attract investment, for the security of energy supply and mix and to reduce the cost of doing business (economies of scale) and costs to consumers. Regional energy generation provides an optimal economic solution to generating and using energy, because energy is produced where it is most economical and supported, and is provided where it is most highly needed. Power pools are also important because power trade is an indicator of energy integration; power pools themselves are key drivers of regional integration; there is high political commitment to regional energy markets; and regional energy integration through power pools is a prerequisite for sustainable development.
