We are pleased to announce the dates for this year’s ALER Conference which will take place in Mozambique on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 October 2017.

With a high percentage of the West African population living in remote rural areas, clean energy-powered mini-grids (CMEGs) have been identified as an essential tool for achieving universal energy access. An ambitious target of building 128,000 in West Africa by 2030 has been set.
The ECOWAS Renewable Energy Facility (EREF) has been in place since 2011 and provides funding for the entire ECOWAS region. EREF-GB was established in 2017 and is an exclusive funding window for Guinea-Bissau. The deadline was extended until 30 June 2017.
Under the agreement signed with RECP, ALER is currently translating the Mini-Grid Policy Toolkit into Portuguese and is adding new mini-grid case studies in Portuguese-Speaking African Countries (PALOP) to the document.
