Regional Energy Co-operation Summit

The Regional Energy Co-operation Summit is an annual investors meeting focused on energy, infrastructure, and finance of projects addressing cross-border co-operation and regional integration.

The Summit comes to Ghana as an evolution of the successful Powering Africa: Ghana meeting which took place in 2015. The agenda will build on the discussions which took place at the first meeting, looking at how Ghana can achieve its potential for regional collaboration in the power sector by working with other African countries.

Energy, infrastructure, and finance will form the cornerstones of the discussions.
