Financing clean energy rural electrification projects
Day: Sunday, 4th of October
Time: 14:30 – 16:00
Room: Auditorium 2
This event aims to share best practices for financing decentralised renewable energy projects in developing and emerging markets and to provide participants with a thorough understanding on how to make use of existing and upcoming financing schemes for replication and up-scaling purposes.
This topic is systematically identified as a core issue for renewable energy and energy access practitioners, deepening session participants’ knowledge of the availability of finance, how to make use of it, and how to design project and business proposals to develop a strong business case.
To achieve these objectives, ARE plans to host and moderate a panel with 6 experts to present and discuss financial support programmes, instruments and models for renewable energy and rural electrification projects, particularly for small- and medium scale energy access solutions. Following the presentations, ARE will moderate a Q&A session with the panel and the audience.
Organisers: Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE)
Detailed Programme: There will be up to six 10-minute presentations from the invited speakers, followed by a 30-minute Q&A session with the speakers and the audience. Details to follow.
