The Global Off-Grid Solar Forum and Expo is the premier meeting of the off-grid solar sector providing a unique platform for knowledge exchange, networking and showcasing off-grid solar products and services.

The event aims to accelerate the development of the global off-grid solar market contributing to achieving universal energy access by 2030. 

The previous edition of the event was held in February 2020 in Nairobi. It was officially opened by H.E. The President of the Republic of Kenya Hon. Uhuru Kenyatta and saw over 1,250 participants from 75 countries, 80 exhibitors and over 80 government officials attending.

As part of deepening collaboration with governments and development partners, this year the organisers are expanding their focus to relevant neighboring sectors and are thinking more broadly as to how off-grid solar can contribute to household needs beyond energy access.
