Africa Report


Africa is quickly becoming one of the most significant regions in the global expansion of the solar PV industry. The high levels of solar irradiation, extreme (and growing) energy demand, an increasing amount of renewable energy related commitments by governments in the region, and the lack of reliable energy infrastructure are just some of the factors that are sparking growing interest from local businesses and international stakeholders alike.

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the key facts and figures related to some of the most prominently developing solar markets on the continent, serving as well as a prelude to the Unlocking Solar Capital: Africa conference Solarplaza will be organizing together with GOGLA, on 25 and 26 October 2017 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.
