6th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum in Lusaka

18-03-2020 to 19-03-2020, Lusaka, Zambia

The Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) will be hosting the 6th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum (EAIF) in Lusaka, Zambia on 18-19 March 2020.

EAIF is a well-established political exchange and business event aimed at assisting the private and public sector to get up to speed on the latest developments in the off-grid sector and do business.

REEEP will be represented at the event by Sabera Khan, Senior Liaison for Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa (BGFA) and Gender Ambassador for PFAN, who will discuss the BGFA project, and John Tkacik, REEEP's Director of Energy Analytics, who will be a member of the ARE Awards 2020 jury.

The Forum offers the opportunity:

  • for companies to showcase their innovative off-grid solutions, products and services to investors and partners at the exhibition;

  • for key public sector players to present their upcoming funding and de-risking programmes and policy initiatives;

  • to tailor and personalise the conference according to participants’ priorities;

  • to find business partners and advance your projects through the B2B matchmaking session; and

  • to discuss major sector trends and topics in the off-grid energy markets in Africa, where 95% of the rural population have no access to modern energy services.

To intensify the exchange with players from and outside Africa, ARE will also hold its Annual General Meeting in conjunction with the Forum the day before.
