Gridworks at the Africa Energy Forum 2019


The Africa Energy Forum, which took place on 10 to 14 June in Lisbon, Portugal, provided the perfect launchpad for Gridworks.

Simon Hodson, Gridworks CEO, spoke on a panel addressing to what extent private sector financing is required to transform Africa’s electricity networks. Hodson stated:

“It is fantastic to see the overwhelming conversations Gridworks has generated in its early conception here at the AEF. It is widely recognised that significant investment needs to be channelled through a dedicated platform such as Gridworks in order to overcome the bottleneck which has prevailed to date for power availability, and indeed economic development, across Africa.”
