Distributed generation working group report
TowerXchange hosted our inaugural working groups at our recent TowerXchange Meetup Africa. These unique discussions help vendors understand the real operating conditions for leading buyers at MNOs, towercos and their subcontractors, identifying specific requirements and revealing much about procurement criteria. In our distributed generation working group, we focused on diesel, hybrid and renewable generation, drawing upon the experiences of two towercos, two MNOs, an ESCO and three of Africa’s leading managed service providers.
