Sustainable Financing for Sustainable Energy - Managing Currency Risk
Foreign Exchange Risk ("FX Risk") is a key inhibitor of capital inflows and deal progress for the power sector in Sub-Saharan Africa. It is an issue that has been and will continue to be of interest for African utilities, IPPs, finance ministries, developers and a host of other parties. FX Risk is rising due to volatile and declining commodity prices, uncertain macro-adjustments, and a potential eventual reversal in a record-low hard currency interest rate environment. SEforALL, Power Africa and TCX will partner to conduct a series of webinars on this topic that build upon initial outreach by Power Africa and TCX from a workshop at the 2016 Africa Utility Week.
Presenters: TCX (Harald Hirschhofer), Barclays (Saloshni Pillay), Persistent Energy Capital (Dirk Muench)
Attendees: African utility representatives, Regulators, IPPs, DISCOs, Mini-Grid developers, DFIs, MDBs and Ministries of finance.
