AEF: Off the Grid is co-located with the Regional Energy Co-operation Summit: East in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in January 2019.
Energy projects are the major driver for industrialisation and electricity development. Under the theme ‘Anchor Projects for Regional Energy Development and Industrialisation’, the Regional Energy Co-operation Summit (RECS) is focused on unleashing energy, oil and gas potential in West Africa and beyond.
Looking at the entire energy supply chain, the summit addresses the regional electricity market, cross-border energy infrastructure, investment partnerships in upstream and downstream gas and renewable energy development among other topics. RECS explores business opportunities in the regional power pooling and the impact that these anchor energy projects will have on regional energy development.
RECS provides a platform to present investment opportunities to enhance momentum in achieving goals and secure financing. Alongside strategic discussions, the forum hosts private business meetings and offers a unique networking and business opportunity between decision-makers from the value chain and the private sector.
