Gigawatt opportunities in the West African large-scale and off-grid solar markets

Thank you to everyone who joined us at Solar & Off-Grid Renewables West Africa!

Building on last year’s success, this year's programme delivered a sophisticated and highly focused conference that gathered the key regional and international players of the solar industry. Taking place in Accra, our 5th African event transcended borders and had a distinctive West African focus with attention to the opportunities and barriers that are encountered by the solar industry of each country. With approximately 58MW of solar installed in West Africa so far, our market analysis points that in the next 2 years the installed capacity would increase exponentially going past 400MW. 

Our aim was to aid in speeding up the uptake of solar in West Africa, whilst facilitating business opportunities for our attendees.
