African Utility Week Is Coming Up And Peripheral Vision Will Be There!

16 May 2017

For those who don’t know, Utility Week is an international series of events that brings together stakeholders from key and emerging markets to collaboratively discuss and develop potential solutions to issues that affect the energy market.

With conferences in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Australia, Utility Week confronts current events affecting the energy and utilities sector in each region.

From the 16th to the 18th of May, the first of these global events kicks off with Africa Utility Week, hosted at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on Lower Long Street, in Cape Town.

As our speciality is solutions development and provision, we at Peripheral Vision have made sure to be there. We will be exhibiting cutting-edge systems that facilitate the efficient, streamlined control and management processes we believe could be a boon to the energy and utilities industries.

What’s On The Agenda?

Each of the three days of the conference will be marked by a keynote address that will set the tone of the conversation and focus on different facets of the contemporary environment facing the energy market in Africa.

Among the topics on the agenda for the event are:

  • The fourth industrial revolution in an African context
  • Climate change and Africa’s energy sector
  • The benefits and efficiencies of digital technology
  • Cyber security
  • Predicting the 2030 power business model

We’re excited to be exhibiting our products, systems and solutions in the context of an initiative that has such far-reaching significance for Africa and the unique, contemporary challenges it presents to the energy sector.

Africa’s Energy Sector Needs Innovative Solutions

More than just showcasing individual Audio Visual and digital communication products, Peripheral Vision will be illustrating that we are about providing solutions in the form of complete systems made up of world-class technologies and comprehensive training.

Africa Utilities Week recognises the importance of digital technologies in meeting the growing needs of the energy and utilities market in Africa, as well as the expertise and experience in applying that technology to facilitate the most efficient results.

For those willing to look, there is opportunity in the challenges presented by Africa’s energy infrastructure.

Energy access in Africa is only 24%, and the majority of the continent’s 1.2 billion people remain unserved by a traditional power grid. This infrastructural underdevelopment represents a blank slate. Unlike more developed areas of the world, there is no need for cutting-edge technologies to be jury-rigged into aging and dilapidated systems. While parts of the developed world rush to modernise their energy infrastructure to bring it in-line with modern technologies, there is room in Africa to develop technologically contemporary infrastructure, from the ground up. 

This, and more, is a conversation that we at Peripheral Vision are excited to bring our digital communications and technological expertise to.
