Ethiopia Unveils Ten-Year Power Project Plan

 

ADDIS ABABA – Ethiopian Electric Power has disclosed plans to build 71 power projects over the next 10 years. This will cost at least U.S.$40 billion and will consist of 16 hydropower, 24 wind, 17 steam, and 14 solar power projects.

Andualem Siae, CEO of Ethiopian Electric Power has said that the project cost is expected to be covered by private and public partnerships, the African Development Bank, the World Bank, other development partners and financiers, Ethiopian Electric Power, and the Ethiopian government.

In July 2021, the African Development Bank (AfDB) approved two grants worth U.S.$83.6 million which enable Djibouti and Ethiopia to proceed with the construction of a second power transmission line which will eventually boost their energy trade, after enjoying the returns from the first project that linked their power grids.

Among the projects planned to be built in the next 10 years are 16 water, 24 wind, 17 steam and 14 solar power projects, CEO said.

Based on the directive, two solar power projects will be built by Saudi Arabia’s Aqua Power Company, which is in the process of being developed by private developers and private and public partners and the company is preparing to begin construction.

As to Andualem, negotiations have also started with the United Arab Emirates Company Amia to build the Aisha 1 wind farm project, and bidding is underway to well sort out developers for other wind power projects.

According to the CEO, construction of the Tulu Moye and Corbeti steam power projects has also been commenced by private developers.

Abu Dhabi Wealth Fund Targets Africa, Renewables to Lift Returns

(Bloomberg) — Abu Dhabi’s top sovereign wealth fund is looking to Africa and renewable energy to generate greater returns, while relying more on artificial intelligence to mine data and spot new investment opportunities.

“With an abundance of natural resources and young, growing and increasingly educated populations, African countries are among those offering the greatest potential for long-term investors,” said Abu Dhabi Investment Authority Managing Director Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. “We already routinely incorporate climate-change considerations into all of our investment proposals, and have been steadily expanding our exposure to renewable energy.”

The $710 billion fund, known as ADIA, this year started a climate-change equity portfolio aimed at boosting its green-economy exposure, and is a shareholder in sustainable-energy projects that generate more than 20 gigawatts of power.

ADIA’s 20-year annualized returns through December of last year were 4.8%, the lowest since 2008, according to the fund’s 2019 review. It blamed the absence of strong gains in the late 1990s for the drop. Thirty-year annualized rates of return were 6.6%, compared with 6.5% in 2018. Sovereign wealth funds in the Gulf, where governments are struggling to absorb the impact of lower oil prices, have been making adjustments to generate higher yields.

Africa Prospects
While ADIA continues to see China and India as the global economy’s growth engines, it’s monitoring developments on the world’s poorest continent for opportunities. Nigeria’s stock market is the best-performing in the world after Argentina this year, while dollar bonds issued by Angola, Zambia and Ghana posted the best returns among emerging markets last month. Five of the world’s 10 fastest-growing economies will be found in Africa through 2022, according to forecasts compiled by Bloomberg.

Investors Are Waking Up to Some of the Most-Maligned Markets

ADIA is betting that advances in technology are “likely to bring the greatest changes to the investment industry in the decade to come,” Al Nahyan said in the review released on Tuesday.

In response, ADIA earlier this year made a string of hires to become part of a team that is building out its artificial intelligence and machine learning expertise.

“ADIA has made it a priority to integrate technology throughout our investment process, in ways that support our ability to generate insights and achieve superior returns,” the managing director said.

It employs about 1,700 people and besides developed markets equities, which makes up as much as 42% of ADIA’s portfolio, the fund holds bonds, alternative assets, real estate, private equity, infrastructure and cash.

Saudi public investment fund poised to invest in Egypt’s sovereign wealth fund

Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) is keen to inject investment into Egypt’s Sovereign Wealth Fund (TSFE) as well as into other projects, reports say citing a statement from the Egyptian government.

Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) is keen to inject investment into Egypt’s Sovereign Wealth Fund (TSFE) as well as into other projects, reports say citing a statement from the Egyptian government.

TSFE has according to the statement submitted investment proposals to the Saudi fund. The announcement came during Wednesday’s meeting between Egypt’s Moustafa Madbouly, Ayman Soliman, the TSFE CEO and Saudi State Minister Issam bin Saad.

Saad made the trip to Egypt to review previous works, investment agreements previously signed, and to review the investments that TSFE proposes for the PIF to study. Saudi Arabia is the regional leading backer of the regime of President Al Sisi who came to power in 2013 following a coup d’état against first democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi.

The Gulf country has pumped billions of dollars as well as grants into Egypt’s economy. During his last official visit to Egypt in 2016, King Salam oversaw the signing of several investment agreements worth 60 billion riyals between PIF and the Egyptian government. The investments covered several areas including energy, agriculture and maritime transport.

All Female Investors and Entrepreneurs Panel @ 8 th AFA

The 8 th Angel Fair Africa would feature an all female investors and entrepreneurs panel; thus building on our 2016 all female investors panel. The investors pane, consisting of Hannah Subayi, Partner of Dazzle Angels, Evelyne Dioh, CEO of WIC Capital, Lelemba Phiri, Partner of Enygma Ventures and Maya Famodu, CEO of Ingressive Capital, will be moderated by Salimatou Diallo, Partner of SD Avocats.

 

The entrepreneurs panel, consisting of Magatte Wade CEO of Skin to Skin, Jamila Zomah CEO of Africa Dish Out, Isseu Diop Sakho CEO of Mburu, and Sassoum Niang CMO of InTouch SA, will be moderated by Eva Sow, Director of i4Policy.

“The Africa investment and entrepreneurial ecosystem is maturing to the point where we have strong participation of women across the entire value chain. Our all-female panels are meant to showcase this important development” said Eric Osiakwan, Co-Founder of Angel Fair Africa. This year’s investors panelists are actually some of the most active investors during the pandemic. For example Maya Famodu closed her $10m Seed Fund during the pandemic. Lelemba Phiri, Evelyne Dioh and Hannah Subayi have all made significant investments during the period. Therefore their panel will focus on how they ensured these achievements, and the lessons to be learnt therefrom. The entrepreneurs panel, on the other hand, is made up of those who have defied the pandemic to grow their businesses. For example, Jamila Zomah whose Africa Dish Out saw 44% growth. Isseu Diop Sakho of Mburu who actually got money??? during the pandemic. They would be sharing these stories on their panel.

The lockdown in Africa during the pandemic, created a positive domino effect, where we saw mergers and acquisitions (M&A) picking up pace across the continent. Therefore we are replacing our Exit panel with an M&A panel, Here we have Endre Opdal, CEO of HotelOnline, Dare Okundjou, CEO of MSF Africa, Gregory Rockson and CEO of mPharma sharing their recent M&A activities. This panel will be moderated by Winnie Mwangi, a VC and Impact Investment Professional from Kenya.

These feed into our overall theme of exploring Lucy Quist’s Bold New Normal within the new normal of “doing deals in a virtual environment”, featured on:

5th November 2020 on the www.virtualconferenceafrica.com platform.

Being a thought leader, as well as the Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer of Morgan Stanley, Lucy would open the day with her views on how Africa’s Bold New Normal would work within the World’s new normal.The format will be a fireside chat with Ian Ziddah, Partner of Chanzo Capital. Teresa Clarke, Chairman and CEO of Africa.com will follow with a lunchtime keynote fireside chat on how she exemplified the bold new normal. She left Goldman Sachs in New York, relocated to Johannesburg, South Africa, and proceeded to build Africa.com from the ground up into a media empire, which last year acquired iAfrica. The day will end with Musi Skosana of MSM Property Fund interviewing Tim Draper of Draper. VC on his bold new normal of investing globally from Silicon Valley into companies like Baidu, Tesla, Hotmail, Skype, etc which all redefined their industries.
