“Developing and scaling up access to power” is the main objective of the twelfth annual Uganda Energy conference taking place at the minute at the Kampala Serena Hotel.
The conference sponsored and organized by Siemens and Uganda’s Ministry of Energy will look at among others: promoting collaboration and knowledge sharing among the Government agencies and private sectors; defining and modelling energy access and global trends and then of course looking at power generation today and tomorrow in Uganda.
The Battery Operated Systems for community Outreach (BOSCO Uganda) a Faith based organization of the Catholic Archdiocese of Gulu in northern Uganda is honoured by the invitation to be at the high profile energy conference of the nation running for two days beginning Wednesday September 13 and ending Thursday September 14, 2017.
The conference code named “Future Energy Uganda” brings together over two hundred agencies who intend to network 40 noted speakers to share insights and 25 that provide solutions so Uganda achieves its goals. BOSCO Uganda’s Board of Director member for Energy Mathew Langol and Tonny Okwonga Partnerships and Development Manager are among the over two hundred agencies intending to network.
With a decade long soloist experience in internet and 70 KWH Nano scale utility accessibility in the areas of the greater north of the country BOSCO Uganda is signalling to the 25 Energy solution providers that Uganda’s goal to generate 96 percent from renewable energy to provide for 98 percent Ugandans by 2030 is doable.
“It is a matter of collaboration and knowledge sharing to have the country’s goals achieved”; says Mr Langol. The resources are there; geothermal, biofuel and peat; all these will upscale Uganda’s only 870 MW Hydro energy source to thousands in the shortest possible time we want.
