YPE Paris Speaker Series “ELECTRICITE & AFRIQUE, éclairer le potentiel” October 20, 2016

With 750 million people excluded from efficient and reliable electric grids, Africa appears as one of the most promising green field for the energy players. However, the challenges are significant with spread populations or governance issues. Capturing the growth potential requires adapted business models and constant innovations.

We asked four outstanding speakers to enlighten the perspectives for us:

  • Pierre Carpentier – Director – Investisseurs et Partenaires
  • Ralph Olaye – Business Developer- Eranove (ECP Private Equity)
  • Fabrice Le Saché – CEO – Aera Group and Coordinator index UP40
  • Caroline Frontigny – Co founder - Upowa

Jean-Michel Huet, partner at Bearing Point with a strong expertise on Africa, coordinated this panel discussion which took place at the Neoma Business School.
