EDM Consolidates International Position at Africa Energy Forum

The company Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) has consolidated its position in the international arena with yet another participation in the annual Africa Energy Forum (AEF), which is taking place in Barcelona, Spain, from 25 June until today, 28 June, the Carta de Moçambique news portal reported on Friday .

The site explains that as one of the largest international platforms for meetings and exhibitions in the energy sector, in which investors, financiers, promoters, consultants, contractors and other relevant players take part, including the public and private sectors from all over the world, EDM capitalised on its participation in the AEF for the first time, with a space at the fair for exhibitors, having managed to attract new people interested in investing in the country’s electricity sector.

According to EDM’s Chairman of the Board of Directors (chairmans), Marcelino Gildo Alberto, “this kind of opportunity is one to make the most of. We have several partners and investors here who are interested in working with African companies, particularly from Mozambique.

In this context, EDM’s aim is to explore new opportunities, as well as carry out business and investments, with the aim of continuing to guarantee quality energy, responding effectively to the demands of families and the needs of national industrialisation.”

During the special panel debate on investments in the country (Mozambique Country Spotlight), EDM reaffirmed its commitment to making the country a regional energy hub. “We are potential energy producers, with the capacity to sell to neighbouring countries. The Southern African region has an energy deficit of around ten thousand Megawatts, and EDM is ready to lead the process of selling energy on the regional market,” assured the company’s chairmans.

It should be noted that, in this context, the construction of the Interconnection Line with Malawi (MOMA Project) is underway, as well as energy sales deals with Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Eswatini and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Regarding the Energy Transition, Mozambique had the opportunity to invite more investors to implement the Clean and Renewable Energy Projects, considering the great progress of the projects achieved so far, namely the first Wind Power Plants in Namaacha and the Floating Solar Power Plant in Chicamba, with state-of-the-art technology, at an advanced stage of development, as well as the photovoltaic power plants that are already in commercial operation, namely those in Mocuba and Tetereane.

Also at the AEF 2024 event, EDM was honoured in the Photography Competition, in the Energy and Sustainability category, where it exhibited an aerial photograph of the Tetereane Photovoltaic Plant, located in the district of Cuamba, Niassa province. “This is a first for EDM and Mozambique. So we are all to be congratulated. We have shown the world that Mozambique is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” praised Marcelino Gildo Alberto.
