Webinar: Key considerations to scale up the mini-grid sector in Africa

ATA Insights' Knowledge Partners

Africa is in need of increased accessibility to high-quality, sustainable, and low-cost electricity. Renewables are growing at a fast pace to cover energy needs, meaning much more variable renewable capacity at record low cost will enter the grid over the next few years.

In rural areas and remote islands where residents are scattered and grid extension is prohibitive, use of mini-grids and off-grid solar systems can be an option to bring electricity to consumers faster and at lower cost.

In this webinar, will analyze how the all-time low cost of renewables is creating an attractive environment for investment in mini-grid projects in Africa.
