African Utility Week confirms 10th African country for metering programme


African Utility Week, a leading conference and exhibition for the power industry, has confirmed speakers from 10 African countries for its two-day metering conference, taking place in Cape Town, South Africa on 13-14 May.

Mohlomi Seitlheko, metering manager from Lesotho Electricity Company, will present at the event alongside metering industry executives from South Africa, Cameroon, Tanzania, Nigeria, Zambia, Egypt, Uganda, Malawi and Ghana.

The metering conference programme, which is one of seven tracks at the utility-focused conference, will cover experience sharing between African countries that have rolled out smart metering programmes; different approaches to demand management and best practices for data management.

Conference director Christa Robijn said: “It is important for Pan-African countries to be part of the conversation around revenue management and learn from each others’ experiences of meter pilots in order for projects to be sustainable.

“We will also debate smart metering in Africa, which will be interesting as Nigeria is driving smart meters while other countries will feel they don’t have the smart infrastructure in place yet.”
