Webinar Agenda

Distributed energy resources are now an established part of most African utilities’ generation mix but most are outside the utilities’ direct control.

In this live webinar, Oracle discusses the best strategy and solutions for managing digital disruption at the grid edge in an African energy context.

The global software company advises that utilities should adopt ‘an edge to the enterprise’ approach. This means giving stakeholders the data and device visibility they need while increasing operational efficiency.

Join in this webinar to:

  • Learn how data from intermittent distributed generation and variations in consumption patterns are vital to efficiently control African utility networks
  • Understand how state and privately owned African utilities can leverage the growth of data to drive safe and reliable performance.
  • Discover how digital utility transformation enables the delivery of new energy services faster and with less risk.

I hope this webinar will touch base on African countries that have other challenges than just the infrastructure, like Libya for example.

I am an individual that would like to try and help the community in Libya to overcome the major problem of Electricity cuts that some time lasts for more than 12 hours a day, and in some occasions it could take days to come back!!

I am a concerned Citizen and an observer in the electricity industry in Nigeria. I am worried with the erratic supply of electricity in Nigeria. Worst still the spate of energy theft and mismanagement. The electric sector is in bad shape in this country. What are the emerging strategies in the sector to revive the industry? Electricity customers are suspicious of the energy players and Regulators are not helping the system in any way.
