INTRODUCTION TO THE AEF: OFF THE GRID SUMMIT
aef: off the Grid is a meeting for public and private sector decision-makers to explore the growth of off-grid energy solutions across the African continent. Now in its 3rd year, the meeting brings together the off-grid energy value chain - from governments, rural electrification agencies, financiers, power developers, technology providers, and equipment manufacturers - to uncover investment opportunities in the off-grid space and discuss how to create economies of scale. The theme of this year’s meeting in Addis Ababa was ‘A Sustainable Role for Mini and Off-Grid Solutions in the African Energy Ecosystem,’ focusing on the role of the private sector in empowering rural dwellers by delivering energy access beyond the grid. The meeting presented investment opportunities aligned with recent trends in the off-grid market and offered unique networking and business opportunities between decision-makers from the value chain and the private sector.
