  • Optimise the operational delivery performance of ESCOs by sharing direction and best practices with both the leaders of the ESCOs themselves, and with MNOs’ and towercos’ Partner Managers 
  • Evangelise the ESCO model to prospective investors, thereby attracting more funding at lower cost, with a view to deepening the pool of viable prospective ESCO partners 
  • Refine stakeholders’ understanding of the scenarios where ESCOs are the best partners, and those where towercos remain critical – exploring how ESCOs and towercos can co-operate 
  • Showcase proven green energy innovations, with the goal to continue to further reduce reliance on fossil fuels, while at the same time reducing costs
