Renewable Energy for Sustainable Growth

Rwanda possesses significant renewable energy resources and has adopted ambitious capacity expansion targets. In order to support the deployment of additional renewable energy projects in Rwanda, Energy Private Developers (EPD), the Rwandan Energy Association, and the European Renewable Energy Federation (EREF) organised the “Renewable Energy for Sustainable Growth” Matchmaking Conference & Exhibition.

The event ventured into the Rwandan and East African renewable energy markets and provided an international business and partnership platform by highlighting attractive investment opportunities. The two-day conference & exhibition for renewable energy engaged private and public sector players for networking, dialogue, technology exhibition and knowledge exchange to scale-up the use of renewable energy for sustainable growth.

The first day focussed on presenting opportunities and trends in Rwanda’s renewable energy market both grid-connected and beyond the grid.

The second day featured presentations from several international financial support instruments as well as an extensive matchmaking session for companies and financiers.

Having taken place at the heart of Kigali, the conference provided a combination of in-depth panel and expert discussions with senior-level members from the government and key business leaders and pioneers, while providing ample room for networking and busines-to-business exchanges.
