About The Event (#africasolarenergy)

With solar power capacity growing from a meagre 331 MW in 2011 to 10,581 MW by the end of 2020, Africa has the potential to be one of the most significant markets in terms of solar power deployment. Solar projects of all sizes and categories are gaining traction across the continent with increasing energy demand, a focus on improving energy access, the energy transition goals of nations, and the reducing costs of solar equipment. Various countries have introduced renewable energy and solar power targets along with policy mechanisms such as feed-in tariffs, net metering and competitive bidding for attracting investments. 

Consequently, the African solar market is witnessing the entry of large development finance institutions, financial donors, and climate funds in recent years. While the majority of the upcoming solar capacity is in the form of large utility-scale projects, C&I solar and solar minigrids are also gaining traction owing to their attractive cost economics. Like most solar power markets, Africa too has its own set of challenges including inadequate grid capacity, lack of creditworthy power offtakers, time-consuming permits and approvals, and difficulty in accessing low-cost funds. However, these issues are expected to be addressed over time, leading to massive investments in the deployment of solar power projects across Africa in this decade

Featuring two days of high-level presentations, and discussions, this year’s Solar & Energy Storage event will bring together leading solar businesses, utilities, non-profits, and policymakers for an exclusive three-day event—the first event focused on Africa’s solar potential. The event will reflect the growing number of storage-plus-solar projects in a holistic way and will feature a day on solar, a day on solar-plus-storage, and a day on storage.

About the event

Solar energy is a key energy source to meet the rapidly growing energy demand in Africa, which cannot be met by traditional sources alone. Its potential is extremely strong in Africa. This strong solar potential provides us with the opportunity to develop renewable energy projects that will boost the African energy/electricity supply, mitigate the damaging effects of fossil fuel, and generate compelling returns for our investors.

The 3rd Annual Africa Solar and Energy Storage Forum brings together industry experts from utilities, regulators, leading investors, power developers, technology providers, financiers and multilateral agencies. Energy leaders will use this platform to highlight their commitment to drive forward solar energy projects in Africa and to share strategies for future development.

Hear from the decision-makers and industry experts as they come together to share their experience and knowledge as well as look at the future opportunity of solar power market in Africa. Solar panel manufacturers will share their views on technical requirements, standards and latest design & technology. Digitalization & remote monitoring will be discussed to bring an understanding on the importance of accurate data analytics and how it plays an important part in the operational and developing phase as well as help predict components failure, reduce operational costs and risks.

Join us to brainstorm and discuss the opportunities and challenges in Africa’s solar industry, market trends, policy update, technological challenges and finance & investment across the entire African solar sector. The event will also address the challenges and opportunities of  digital innovation, including how machine learning, digital twin and predictive analytics can enable monitoring and prediction failures to help drastically improve availability, reliability of the solar assets & increase revenue and reduce O&M costs.
