Mr. Russom Kebedom
Mr. Russom Kebedom is the Unipower AB, Sweden Export Area Manager for Africa and the Middle East, since 2008. He holds a Master of Science (MSc) degree in International Project Management and a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. Mr. Kebedom has to date conducted numerous seminars and workshops in “Power Quality Management” and” Energy Efficiency” throughout Africa and Middle East among key Electricity Supply Industry (ESI) stakeholders. These stakeholder engagement platforms were very instrumental in creating opportunities for capacity building, knowledge sharing and creating awareness on mitigating the fundamental problems arising from poor power quality. The engagements also practically demonstrated the potential contribution of effective power quality management not only in terms of mitigating network planning or operational risk, but also in realizing financial gains or savings.
