Building on last year’s success, Solar & Off-grid Renewables West Africa offers a sophisticated and highly focused conference that gathers the key regional and international players of the solar industry. The 5th African event transcends borders and has a distinctive West African focus with attention to the opportunities and barriers that are encountered by the solar industry of each country. With approximately 58MW of solar installed in West Africa so far, market analysis suggests that in the next 2 years the installed capacity may increase exponentially, going past 400MW. The aim of the conference is to aid in speeding up the uptake of solar in West Africa, while facilitating business opportunities for attendees.
