June 13-16, 2017
Omni Shoreham Hotel | Washington, DC
The demand for power in Africa continues to grow and the continent's energy market is more diverse than ever before. New technologies present new opportunities and risks, whilst existing models of power generation face new challenges. With bold initiatives like the African Development Bank's New Deal for Energy and Lighting Africa, now is the time to explore how Africa's renewable energy revolution will be financed.
The panel will discuss the role of various actors in this revolution and how they come together to deliver access to power.
