"We have been in talks with various entities and expressed interest in creating mixed companies to promote investments in the renewable energy area. Angola does not have much wind potential, however, the sun and biomass potential is great. Regarding the latter, we have great possibilities to install biomass centrals to produce electricity. To give an example, we have the BIOCOM project, which produces electricity from sugar cane, and is also the first project with private investment in the country. In PRODEL we are open to look at partnerships with private investors in order to work in renewable energies development.”

“As far as oil and gas business is concerned, Angola has been Africa’s second biggest producer for many years. During the “boom times” when the oil price was very high, we saw lots of investments and tremendous development of the Angolan oil and gas industry. We also saw the introduction of new technology; Angola was a test base for new technologies in oil and gas, so we as a country had a huge possibility to develop people. We had lots of joint ventures between Angolan and foreign entities, which brought improvement, technologies, innovation and know-how to the country. The oil and gas sector has been stable, investment has been strong, and all the major investors saw that Angola had huge potential.”
