The Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP) will hold its first trade mission to Rwanda and Uganda from March 1st – March 8th, 2017. Networking seminars are planned on March 2nd in Kampala, Uganda and March 7th in Kigali, Rwanda.

The trade mission will consist of up to 15 European companies from the European solar energy and small hydro power sector interested in the Eastern African Market, in particular Rwanda and Uganda. Similarly, up to 20 local companies from each of the target countries and 5 companies from other African countries will participate.

The RECP trade missions aim to stimulate the market for renewable energy in Africa by encouraging and supporting private sector engagement. The missions will create opportunities for African and European private sector cooperation to develop businesses, exchange know-how and support technology transfer by engaging private sector companies as well as business associations on both continents.

The trade mission is organised in partnership with the Rwanda Development Board in Rwanda and the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Initiative in Uganda.

RECP extends its appreciation to its European partners supporting the trade mission particularly their role in mobilizing participants.
