The RECP’s integrated approach
ARE has been working closely with the RECP in informing, mobilising and bringing together renewable energy companies wanting to start or expand operations in African renewable energy markets.
As one of the core activities, ARE in partnership with the RECP organised focused B2B and B2Finance Matchmaking events, thereby providing a strong platform for the sector to network and increase joint business development. For instance, ARE and RECP organised the ARE-RECP Off-Grid Investment Forum held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (12-13 April 2016); a two day event, which was attended by more than 250 participants from the private sector, financiers and development partners and created fertile grounds for more investments in off-grid renewables.
