" With Tanzania being one of our founding member countries, we are keen to do more in support of the country's energy sector goals; Building on the progress made at last year's event in Dar es Salaam, we hope that #TECS24 will provide greater clarity on the proposed role of the private sector in the energy sector and how DFIs, particularly multilateral insurers and guarantors like ATIDI, can be supportive of such efforts and the wider energy transition.

The firm’s energy specialists offer an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Sub-Saharan Africa environment having been involved in several ground-breaking energy projects in the region.
