After CMS' first participation last year in Brussels, we became aware that it is the kind of event we need to attend, and we committed to strengthening our investment in it. To this end, this year CMS Africa will have a stand at the conference venue, will host a cocktail party at one of the official hotels, to welcome our clients and will have a delegation of 9 partners at the event from the offices in South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, Kenya, Lisbon and London. The South Africa partner, Bridgett Majola, will also participate in a debate on procurement strategies and renewable energy projects.Among the topics under discussion this year are: Increasing Pace and Scale of Africa’s Renewable Energy Projects; The Growing Role of Africa’s Gas within Today’s Geo-Political Context; Africa’s Path to Becoming a Global Hydrogen Power House; Building Regional Power Markets.
