From 18-19 March 2020, the 6th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum (EAIF), jointly organised by the Alliance for Rural Electrification and GET.invest, will take place in Lusaka, Zambia. The Forum will convene public and private stakeholders to push the frontiers of clean energy access in rural areas, particularly in Africa, where 95% of the rural population is still without access to safe and sustainable energy sources.
EAIF is a well-established political exchange and business event organised in cooperation with local and regional partners. Forum participants will have the chance to:
- showcase innovative off-grid solutions, products and services to potential investors;
- present forthcoming funding and de-risking programmes and other policy initiatives;
- discuss majors sector trends in the off-grid markets in Africa.
GET.invest supports the event and will offer a GET.invest B2B Matchmaking Session. The session will provide attendees with the opportunity to discuss business with potential investors and partners in a series of select personal meetings.
The 6th EAIF will be in keeping with the successful legacy of its previous editions and bring participants up to speed on the latest developments in the off-grid sector. Next year’s forum will also see the next round of the ARE Awards. The awards, led by the Alliance for Rural Electrification, recognise the clean energy access results of the most passionate and innovative actors in the sector. Contenders are advised to nominate their projects by the 17th of January 2020.
Registration is possible until 18 March 2020. For more information, please visit the forum’s event website, or follow #EAIF2020 on social media.
