Kenya?s Vision 2030 to support East African Power Industry Convention Strong opportunities in power development particularly in Kenya
DMN Newswire--2013-1-17--The annual East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC) has secured the support of Kenya's Vision 2030.  The organisers of EAPIC, the Cape Town-based events company Spintelligent, met with the Vision 2030 directorate in Nairobi recently.  



Claire Volkwyn, Director of Content and Strategy for Spintelligent, says:  ''we are very pleased to partner with the Vision 2030 office in order to highlight opportunities in Kenya.  We firmly believe that Kenya is one of the countries to watch over the next five to ten years.  With an expected average GDP growth of 5%, Kenya's emphasis on growing generation capacity will continue to see a positive impact on the economy.



''Opportunities in geothermal development are particularly strong in Kenya, and along with the need to continue strengthening transmission and distribution infrastructure, there is on-going investment in energy management and energy efficiency for large industry.  We expect to see these as key areas for the foreseeable future''.
