Unlocking Solar Capital (USC) Africa

Shape the Solar Energy Future of Sub-Saharan Africa

Investment Risks & Opportunities | Disruptive Technologies | Public-Private Partnerships

Nearly 600 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa lack access to electricity. With over $20 billion already invested in solar over the past decade and projections of a doubling of energy investments by 2030, now is the time to take action and make a real impact on universal energy access (SDG-7) and climate goals (SDG-13). To expand the growth of renewables in the region, challenges such as the flexibility and reliability of the grid, as well as the affordability for end-users, will have to be faced head-on. Furthermore, investors need to be aware of the latest innovations and approaches that are opening new market segments. Therefore, exchanging information and networks is more critical than ever for Africa’s clean energy future.

The 5th edition of Unlocking Solar Capital (USC) Africa will provide you with this opportunity by fostering collaboration between the investment space – DFIs, impact and climate-aligned investors, philanthropies, venture capital, and commercial capital – and the project development segment – IPPs, project developers, service & product providers. Join a gathering of high-level local and international stakeholders in Uganda on 31 May & 1 June to learn about the latest approaches, innovations, and technologies in the total solar spectrum and become part of the solar energy future of Sub-Saharan Africa.
