Africa Energy Forum: Off the Grid 2018

Africa Energy Forum: Off the Grid will come to Kampala, Uganda from 6-8 February 2018 to focus on the topical issues concerning rolling out off-grid projects across Africa, present the current project opportunities and build on the outcomes of the first successful off grid Summit in December 2016. The 1st Summit saw lively and informative panel discussions where participants discovered how Africa can and must create an enabling environment for the off-grid sector to truly take off.

Supported by the United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States (UN-OHRLLS); the British High Commission in Tanzania; USAID Tanzania and the Department for International Development (DFID), the inaugural meeting attracted over 250 delegates including the Minister of Energy for Tanzania H.E. Hon January Makamba, international investors, facilitators, off-grid developers, as well as pan-African rural electrification agencies, electricity regulators, eight donor organisations and finally private-sector companies including General Electric, Standard Bank, Aecom, Africa Grant Advisors, BBOXX and  Copperbelt Energy Corporation.
