GOGLA, in cooperation with Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Quadia and SolarAid, is organizing a Second Off-Grid Energy Access Investor Conference on December 17, 2014, in London. At the conference will be introduced first-hand insights into the investment potential of a market currently experiencing a very rapid growth.
The event builds on the success of the first off-grid energy access investor conference, held last July in Zurich. While the first edition put emphasis mainly on the financial needs of the industry, the second edition of the investor conferences will give an opportunity to investors to present their requirements towards companies.
The off-grid lighting sector continues to be one of the most attractive opportunities for investors in Africa and other emerging markets with: • US$ 30 billion spent annually by off-grid households on lighting; • Rapidly growing market (77% in 2014); • Offering billions of potential customers innovative products at much lower costs; • The cheapest, zero-carbon route to universal energy access in developing countries.
The meeting will serve as an exclusive platform for selected investors to meet leading companies in the off-grid energy sector and vice versa, and to gain first-hand insight into the investment potential of this rapidly growing market.
Attendance is reserved to selected investors and GOGLA members. Remaining seats will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. For more information, please contact Ms. Tsvetelina Zaharieva at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone: +31 647 508 438.
The preliminary agenda is available now online.
