Forging the power and water markets of the future

A PwC power & utilities roundtable covers the Middle East, Africa and Asia

Expert insight

Power and water market design varies significantly across the Middle East (ME), Africa and Asia. But policy-makers everywhere face the common challenge of ensuring outcomes are consistent with their policy targets and investment requirements. In many locations, water resources are stretched. And as power systems become more decentralised, the need to balance energy resilience with flexibility is adding a new tension to the central trilemma of reliability, affordability and sustainability.

In October 2018, a roundtable composed of experts from 17 countries and five continents debated the lessons learnt from practical experience of what is working well and what’s proving more problematic. The roundtable event, which is part of PwC’s industry programme for power & utilities companies worldwide, brought together leading figures from government, the utilities sector and other stakeholders to discuss common challenges. Participants also examined the balance between policy prescription and market-led change. Most importantly, the illuminated the challenges that lie ahead and how they can be resolved.
