Tanzania is set to host the first Africa Energy Forum: Off the grid from 6-8 December.
Organized by EnergyNet the forum will focus on project opportunities for mini and off grid technology providers working in Africa’s energy space.
This year’s Africa Energy Forum – which took place in June established that there is an increased appetite for off grid projects, and this meeting has therefore been developed to address this appetite by bringing together financiers, 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 organizations 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 Thursday 8th December. The festival will feature ‘stalls’ showcasing off grid and mini grid technologies and innovations and will also feature local Tanzanian musicians and artists.
