Power Nigeria rebrands as Nigeria Energy to drive power production growth

Power Nigeria rebrands as Nigeria Energy to drive power production growth

After eight years of successful editions, Informa Markets has announced that Power Nigeria has now evolved into Nigeria Energy – a transformation designed to ensure Nigeria’s leading event remains at the forefront of the rapidly evolving energy sector.

Nigeria Energy was rebranded from Power Nigeria in 2020 to reflect the evolving nature of producing electricity and delivering energy security.

It is a key platform for gathering contractors, developers, investors, project owners, and utilities to meet and develop reliable power solutions for the country’s peak energy demand and pave the way for decentralisation.

According to an official release, this strategic move, which is driven by extensive outreach and stakeholder engagement, builds on the legacy of Power Nigeria and takes the event to a new level ensuring it meets the needs of Nigeria’s people, businesses, and industries.

“Following a two-year break, Nigeria Energy will return to take place at the Landmark Centre, Lagos from 20-22 September 2022.

“In addition to an exhibition featuring some of the largest and most innovative power companies, from conventional thermal power generation through to transmission and distribution (T&D) and renewable energy and energy storage Nigeria Energy will provide a thought leadership platform for key government stakeholders and private sector companies and investors from across the world to connect, share ideas and knowledge and find solutions to meet Nigeria’s growing energy needs,” the release read.
