GOGLA's 2016 Annual Member Conference Newsletter is now out!
Our Annual Member Conference in Nairobi, Kenya (24 – 27 May, 2016) was a great success. With just over 100 attendees it was our largest member conference to date, with evaluation results indicating our members and invited partners enjoyed the event as much as we did.
The first day, Tuesday May 24th, was dedicated to meetings of GOGLA’s five working groups and a technology-focused workshop, whilst the official Annual General Meeting took place on Wednesday May 25th. Indeed, for the first time in GOGLA’s history, members had the chance to elect a new Board of Directors in an engaging and exciting election process. The AGM was followed by a session where stakeholders had the chance to provide updates on the latest trends of the Kenyan off-grid market.
On Thursday May 26th, focused workshops discussed pay-as-you-go and last mile distribution solutions whereas our partners Power for All, Power Africa and Lighting Global provided participants with details on their latest activities.
In addition to our wide range of GOGLA meeting, workshops and partner's meeting, evening networking receptions were also held during quite a full week in Nairobi.
Lastly, and to round off a successful week, two field trips (business models and technology) were organized for Friday May 27th, allowing participants to get away from the conference room and engage with some of the actors in the Kenyan off-grid solar sector.
Please see our newsletter for further details on each of our meetings, including presentations where available. Please do note that many of the presentations are only available to GOGLA members.
