Mining Webinar 2020

ANGOLA’S MINING SECTOR IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS – REGULATORY AND LEGAL CHANGES AIMED AT ATTRACTING INVESTMENT

The attractiveness of the investment climate in the extractive industries depends on the conditions that govern the exploration and development of mineral substances. During this session key stakeholders will discuss the development of policy and regulatory frameworks, tax policies and institutional frameworks that encourage investment for the continued growth of natural resources and related infrastructures in Angola.

In our continued efforts to support Angola’s natural resources development and following on from the successful 1st Angola Mining Conference that took place last year, we would like to bring our audience a series of industry relevant webinars focused on Angola’s mining sector for the continued economic development growth and diversification.

Energy Webinar 2020

29 October 2020 – 12pm GMT/ Closing the USD50 billion per annum investment gap in Africa's energy sector

The African continent is a huge reservoir of energy resources, with potentials largely unexploited and many more undiscovered. The Africa region is said to have more than enough energy resources to meet its energy needs, well into the foreseeable future.

An African Development Bank (AfDB) study notes that investment needed to close the electricity deficit in Africa is estimated at an annual cost of $35 to $50 billion to achieve 100% urban electrification, 95% rural electrification by 2025. With most African countries having a target of achieving universal electricity access by 2025 and 2030, the question ‘how can Africa attract private sector investment into the energy sector?’ remains pertinent.

This webinar on ‘Closing the US$50 Billion Per Annum Investment Gap in Africa’s Energy Sector’ brought key voices influencing the energy sector, both from the government and financial institution side to discuss issues holding the continent back. Furthermore, the speakers shared their experience in trying out the Puttru digital platform and how they see the technology closing the energy sector investment gap in Africa.

Mining Webinar 2020

Mining Webinar 2020

15 October 2020 – 12pm BST/ Renewable Power for Mines

Limited, unreliable, and inconsistent power supply to Mines across Africa is now the norm. To reduce costs and expedite project development many mining companies are beginning to explore tapping into the abundant renewable options for now, with solar and hybrid solutions. These solutions offer lower energy costs, efficiency savings and the ability to mitigate against volatile fuel prices, thus providing developers with the opportunity for corporate power purchasing agreements directly with the miners.

The webinar points of discussion were: What are the key considerations to selecting hybrid energy solutions? Legal issues to consider under corporate power purchase agreements; Capital outlay vs ROI for mines; Renewable power as a source of energy – incorporating safety, sustainability, and reliability; Investing in the tools for power management – automation and digitalization; and Overview of a successfully implemented project.

21 July – 12 BST/ Private Equity Investments for Pension Schemes – Unpacking risk vs opportunity for a diversified high return portfolio

Private equity funds are uniquely structured to drive growth and transform businesses. While some African pension funds are currently investing in private equity, there is still scope for more PE investment to assist African pension funds to boost their returns. Investing in private equity allows public pension funds to gain exposure to growth companies that have the potential to provide excellent returns over the long term, but how does one balance the risk vs rewards?

The webinar highlighted the following topics: Is Private Equity right for you? Understanding PE investment; How is Private Equity performing? What new opportunities are available in light of the current crisis?; How to balance risk and rewards; Working towards good asset returns - partnering with the right private equity specialists; Diversification of risk – considering new asset classes, percentage of investment, developed or emerging markets; and Regularly assessing asset allocations
