SolarPlaza and the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association (GOGLA) are jointly organising the conference ‘Unlocking Solar Power: Africa’, which will take place from 1 to 2 November 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya.
During the two-day event, more than 300 executives from all over the world will come together to engage in solving Africa’s solar energy funding gap. The participants include staff from development banks, investment funds, solar developers, Independent Power Producers (IPP), Engineering Procurement & Construction Companies (EPC) and other solar stakeholders. The conference aims at bringing together African and European solar industry representatives with financiers and other key market participants.
The RECP and its partners SolarPower Europe and GOGLA are contributing to the event in various ways. In addition to organising the main conference, GOGLA is hosting a master class, where leading investment intermediaries and advisers talk about “Typical barriers standing between a business plan and a signed investment deal”. SolarPower Europe contributes most notably through the organisation of the “On-grid Track” of the conference programme. SolarPower Europe will mobilise the industry know-how from its membership, as well as from key decision-makers from both the public and financial spheres.
At the heart of SolarPower Europe’s and RECP’s contribution lies a dedicated matchmaking session on 2 November, which will bring together key stakeholder groups from all relevant solar market segments. The session will combine all three programmatic tracks (On-grid, Off-grid and SolarHomeSystems) of the conference and will thereby span the entire solar market.
