AATIC 2017 will focus on Micro-Grids

The management of Africa Australia Technology + Infrastructure Conference 2017 is pleased to announce the dates for 2017 edition of AATIC. We are equally excited to inform you that we have now integrated a 2-Day Micro-Grid Masterclass as part of our 2017 package. We would also organise a free guided-tour of key micro-grid sites in and around Perth.

As African countries grapple with huge financial commitments to build mega power plants and reliable transmission lines to wheel-out electricity to teeming population, Micro-grid & Off-grid Renewable energy sources are increasingly becoming the most cost-effective and swift options towards attaining uninterrupted power supply for more Africans.

Africa Australia Technology + Infrastructure Conference (AATIC) is a one-stop forum designed for Australian & African micro-grid stakeholders to meet, exchange valuable contacts and start partnerships.

The 2-day event is designed to support African energy stakeholders’ efforts to attract more foreign investment into micro-grid & off-grid renewable energy sub-sector. AATIC 2017 is positioned to give Australian micro-grid entrepreneurs international platform to showcase their technologies and expand their business to high-demand electricity markets in Africa.

AATIC 2017 will present business opportunities in micro-grid & off-grid renewable energy supply in locations such as:

  • Remote communities
  • Mining projects
  • Industrial clusters
  • Education institutions
  • Gated residential estates
  • Health facilities among others

AATIC 2017 will also present opportunities in the following:

  • Funded microgrid projects
  • Embedded power generation
  • Micro-grid skills upgrade & Training opportunities in African countries
