ECP Recognizes Female Leaders Driving Energy Growth in Africa

Energy Capital&Power (ECP) www.EnergyCapitalPower.com is celebrating women in leadership positions within Africa’s energy and mining sectors as part of its Women in Energy series this month. Countries like Senegal, Uganda, Namibia, and South Africa have female leaders within their ministries who have attracted billions in foreign investment and are driving significant developments in the industry.

Sophie Gladima, Minister of Petroleum and Energies of Senegal, has been a key figure in leading the country through transformative times, with major projects like Sangomar Field Development and GTA LNG project attracting nearly $10 billion in foreign direct investment. Similarly, Ruth Nankabirwa Ssentamu, Minister of Energy and Mineral Development of Uganda, is overseeing the development of the Lake Albert project and the East African Crude Oil Pipeline, representing a major investment in the region.

Maggie Shino, the Petroleum Commissioner of Namibia, has been instrumental in securing upstream investments, with TotalEnergies planning significant investments in the country. In South Africa, Dr. Nobuhle Nkabane, Deputy Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy, is driving the exploration agenda in the country, particularly focusing on natural gas as a means of improving energy security and reducing pollution.

The Women in Energy series by Energy Capital&Power celebrates the contributions of women in shaping the African energy sector. To stay updated on the latest developments, visit www.EnergyCapitalPower.com and follow their social media channels for daily content.
