NEPAD Agency has undertaken to contribute to the implementation of Africa’s Renewable Energy Project Initiative (AREI), which aims at enabling the installation of large-scale renewable energy capacity on the African continent by 2020.
The Initiative is led by the African Union’s commission, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD)’s Agency, the African Group of Negotiators, the African Development Bank, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
It will have a considerable impact on the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions in the continent and we have four years to make it go from an initiative to a reality. This is why we decided to provide a platform where project owners can present directly to developers and financiers who could consider funding these projects for further development or implementation.
It is really important to involve the private sector in that kind of development projects as they can play a huge role and identify opportunities that will build Africa of tomorrow.
I invite you to learn more about it here, and to have an excellent day, wherever you are in Africa or in other parts of the world !
