The Africa Energy Indaba is launching a series of Energy Insights with thought-provoking and progressive discussions from influential energy experts. The objective of the Energy Insights will be to identify and capitalize on opportunities that have the propensity to take energy businesses to unprecedented levels of growth in Africa. The inaugural Energy Insight will deliver an address by Mr. Wale Shonibare – Director, Energy Financial Solutions, Policy and Regulation from the African Development Bank on: 

“FINANCING AND REGULATORY TRENDS IN THE AFRICAN POWER SECTOR – PERSPECTIVES FROM THE AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK”

KEY POINTS OF DISCUSSION INCLUDE:

  • The market for the financing of private sector transactions on power projects: key trends in regulation, tariffs, financials and procurement practices
  • The need for new instruments to fund power projects: examples of Blended Finance, Climate Finance, Public-Private Partnerships, and other instruments developed by the African Development Bank and its partners
  • The role of local currency and capital markets to fill the financing gap for power projects

The conversation is with Wale Shonibare, Director, Energy Financial Solutions, Policy and Regulation, at the African Development Bank. Wale Shonibare has over three decades experience in Investment Banking and Consulting spanning Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He joined the African Development Bank in 2017 as the inaugural Director of Energy Financial Solutions, Policy and Regulation. The team has quickly established itself as a leading transactions team across Africa, having undertaken several Mandated Lead Arranger roles and launched well-acclaimed flagship initiatives to improve the enabling environment for private sector investment in the energy sector.
