WISIONS participated at the 5th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire from 13 – 14 March 2019 and had an interesting exchange with participants from around the world in the context of accelerating rural electrification.Read moreMinimize

WISIONS was at the 5th ARE EAIF. Hosted by the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), in partnership with the African Development Bank and GET.invest (formerly RECP), this was the first time the forum took place in Sub-Saharan Africa, where 588 million people still lack electricity.

The Forum convened over 260 participants from 48 countries with the goal to boost sustainable energy access globally and in particular in Africa. It showcased the latest off-grid political and funding initiatives and was an opportunity to discuss trends and innovations and build partnerships. 

WISIONS had first-hand insights into the role that practitioners in West Africa are playing in accelerating the achievement of sustainable energy access goals. We also exchanged our experiences on partnering with local energy practitioners via practitioner networks.

The Forum also featured the ARE Awards 2019, showcasing companies and organisations which have made special contributions to advance rural electrification.
