Background -  Following the recently concluded Presidential elections, a new government has been put in place. The new Minister of Energy, Water and Hydrocarbons is Mr. Vonjy ANDRIAMANGA. As the country is taking the necessary steps to face the challenges of electrifying both its rural and urban areas, the government seeks to provide universal electricity access by 2030. Indeed, only 15% of the population had access to electricity in 2016.   Investments are needed to reinforce transmission and distribution networks, not only to reduce technical losses, but also to support the further implementation of the national electrification strategy via grid densification.

Madagascar's renewable energy potential remains still unharnessed. If the country is largely betting on solar power technologies (with a potential capacity of 2,000 kWh/m²/year), it has also high wind capacity and biomass resources to contribute to its global electrification. The government also intends to revive the hydropower industry, which has considerable potential, as well as to deploy small solar off grid power plants in rural areas.

Local stakeholders, International Financial Institutions and interested market participants are working together to meet the objective of providing energy access to 70% of Malagasy households by 2030. This means to produce 7,900 GWh by 2030, as opposed to the 1,500 GWh currently produced.

The detailed agenda and the registration form will be sent to you upon your indication of an interest. Registrations are now open with special early bird conditions.

Interested by a speaking opportunity or a display stand?  We have kept the possibility for a limited number of private sector companies to have a speaking slot in one of the sessions of the agenda or to have a space for a display stand in the conference foyer. If you are interested to know more about the proposed cost-effective packages, I will send you details on the benefits and current conditions.
