GOGLA at East African Solar Energy Event

Koen Peters spoke at the SolarMedia conference in Nairobi on 10 and 11 March, which covered solar and off-grid electrification developments. Presentations from inter alia the Kenya and Uganda Ministries of Energy brought out that governments are increasingly recognizing the role of decentralized power in increasing electricity access, even though they have only just begun thinking on how to fit this into national electricity strategies. Varied presentations from off-grid and on-grid industry actors also highlighted the different focuses on ‘large deal/single customer’ and ‘small deal/many customers’ – challenging many of the participants to consider whether the first perspective is necessarily the most logical one. The conference also enabled off-grid industry actors (including current and candidate GOGLA members) to discuss among themselves specific industry topics, demonstrating the value of regular regional get-togethers for the industry.
