Africa Energy Forum: Off the Grid 2016

EnergyNet will launch Africa Energy Forum: Off the Grid in Tanzania from 7-9 December. The Africa Energy Forum: Off the Grid will focus on project opportunities for mini and off grid technology providers working in Africa’s energy space.

This year’s Africa Energy Forum, the most established investment-level conference for Africa’s power sector, saw an increased appetite for off grid projects, and this meeting has therefore been developed to address this appetite by bringing together financers, technology providers and regional leaders in a focused discussion forum.

The Summit will bring together ministries of energy, rural electrification agencies, philanthropic business foundations, banks, regulatory bodies, multilateral organisations and off grid businesses to discuss topical issues concerning rolling out off-grid projects across Africa.

The Off the Grid Summit will be closed by a ‘Festival of Energy’ which will take place on the afternoon of Friday 9th December. The festival will feature ‘stalls’ showcasing off grid and mini grid technologies and innovations and will also feature local Tanzanian musicians and artists. [Read more]
