Vertex, an American company in partnership with the government and private sector, is hosting a conference where experts would submit opinions on how to resolve the country’s water and electricity challenges.

The event, holding at the Landmark Centre in Lagos, is expected to bring together major players in the water and power sectors of the economy.

The programme began on Tuesday and Thursday, 21st – 23rd, June 2022.

The Power & Water Nigeria Exhibition & Conference will offer Stakeholders across the globe, an opportunity to access and engage in technical discussions, on-the-spot assessment of Nigeria’s opportunities in power generation, distribution, renewable, water & the utilities sectors.

Nigeria has the 7th largest population in the world and growing fast, as a result, the supply of Power and Water will need to increase to keep up with the growing demands.

With just over 51 per cent of the population having access to power sometimes, the lack of power has been the biggest obstacle for the country to grow.

 

The water sector on the other hand faces similar challenges with 71% of the population having access to safe water, and yes climate is to be blamed, however, research shows a much-needed upgrade in the water supply infrastructure.

 

The exhibition offers an annual platform for buyers to explore and compare innovative technologies from leading local and international suppliers.
