Africa power negotiations
This free panel-led discussion will provide an update on the tariff renegotiations underway in several African markets. It will also discuss the impact of Covid-19 on current and future project agreements.

Under the leadership of the chairman of Cross-Border Information, Jon Marks, the panel will address the following:

  • The role of utilities and regulators in Africa’s increasingly diverse electricity supply industry.
  • What a fair and effective compromise between private and public interests might look like following the current renegotiations of independent power producer (IPP) tariffs and power purchase agreements (PPAs).
  • What effect tariff renegotiations will have on investor confidence.
  • Whether fundamental changes to the way force majeure or risk mitigation is approached in future PPA agreements in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This webinar will help to set the scene for, and leads up to, the seventh AIX Power and Renewables meeting which is scheduled for 17 to 20 November 2020.
