Brian Paxton is the Managing Director of MBendi Information Services (Pty) Ltd. Brian is a long time energy industry professional currently focusing on providing information about African industry and development, particularly in the energy and mining sectors.
Brian Paxton and I talked for about 50 minutes about a wide range of topics related to Africa and energy developments. Brian knows a lot about both topics and shares some valuable insights into markets, developments and attitudes.
We talked about hydropower, alternatives sources of light and heat, oil and gas, and the potential for moderately sized nuclear plants. At the very end of the interview we briefly talked about the strengthening of ties between Algeria and Russia and the implications that development has for European power markets.
Hope you enjoy the show. Sorry for the long silence.
