What is DRC/NRJ conference?

The Electricity Law of 2014 gave private companies a chance to participate in generating, distributing and selling the country’s energy. Inspired of this liberalization the Federation of Businesses in the Congo (FEC) initiated DRC/NRJ to create a platform to share and to identify new growth strategies for the Congolese energy sector. The conference format is designed to allow national and international delegates to exchange and generated new ideas for how government, industry and finance can work together to deliver better energy and ultimately better development, for all.
