AFRICA NUCLEAR BUSINESS PLATFORM
15-16 October 2019 Mövenpick Nairobi, KENYA
This event was a historic leap forward for clean energy development in Africa and LucidCatalyst's Kirsty Gogan, Eric Ingersoll, and Steve Brick were honored to attend and present.
Africa is hungry for energy, and nuclear power could be part of the answer for an increasing number of countries. A third of the almost 30 countries currently considering nuclear power are in Africa. Kenya, Egypt, Ghana, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria and Sudan have already engaged with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to assess their readiness to embark on a nuclear programme.
With this in mind, Africa Nuclear Business Platform (AFNBP) played a part in shaping the nuclear energy landscape in Africa by having this industry gathering. Hosted by Nuclear Power and Energy Agency (Kenya) and endorsed by the African Commission on Nuclear Energy (AFCONE), this international industry gathering brought together a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including emerging nuclear power countries in Africa, government, regulators, technology vendors, construction companies, law firms, and financial firms.
