Nigeria International Power Expo and Conference is organized by BKG Exhibitions Limited in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Power and other Stakeholders in the Nigerian Power Sector. It is to bring together experts from diverse fields in the power/electricity and allied sectors to showcase latest products and services, discuss, inform, educate, review and or make informed inputs into power policies, programme and implementation in Nigeria’s fast developing power sector.
According to USPR wire, “…We have maintained our core view that the Nigerian power market can offer huge long-term opportunities for investors willing to take current operational risks. This is predicated on colossal untapped – and growing – demand for power, driven by an expanding population, a booming economy and a still limited national electrification rate (currently at about 50% of the population). We forecast real GDP to expand by an annual average rate of 6.8% between 2014 and 2023, while power consumption will grow by an average rate of 9.6% over the same period.” (Thu Jan 08 2015)
