Johannesburg is to host Sub-Saharan Africa’s CIO Power Summit on February 12, which will bring together the senior IT decision makers from the IPP, PPP and National Power communities across the region to focus on Information Technology within the Power Sector.
Power generation networks have become much more complex in recent years, thanks mainly to the rise in renewable energy power generation and the growing number of small, distributed power producers. Demand for power is also increasing in all African countries, yet grid infrastructure is often old and incapable of supporting additional capacity. Equipment is both difficult and costly to maintain, but tighter regulations are driving the industry to be more efficient and cleaner than ever.
The CIO Power Summit will cover all the major topics that are hot in the industry. From analytics to IoT, connectivity to cybersecurity, the event aims keep up-to-date with Digital Transformation and a place for end users to meet with technology companies who are developing tomorrows technologies today.
Representatives from national power companies, independent power producers and solution providers will all be in attendance, including City Power CIO Audrey Mochela, Tebogo Makhwelo, Senior Manager, IT Services for Eskom and ZESCO Director of Generation Fidelis Mubiana.
