Connecting investors with energy developers in Africa

The Renewable Energy Performance Platform (REPP), funded by the UK government’s international climate finance, is to stage a series of virtual networking sessions connecting leading investors with energy developers operating in countries in Africa.


Nine investors, including AfDB and Finnfund, have signed up to the online event to explore investment opportunities with experienced energy developers in the clean power IPP market in Africa, as well as its rising stars. GET.invest and IRENA are also taking part, representing platforms that are focused on matchmaking between developers and funders and technical assistance providers.


The sessions are part of REPP Academy 2020, a two-week capacity building and networking programme.


REPP Academy 2020 is a capacity-building event designed to help REPP’s on-grid investees successfully advance their projects and deliver clean power across countries in Africa. As well as the networking sessions with investors, investees will take part in a mix of short presentations, group discussions, and one-on-one meetings with peers and members of the REPP team.
