An afternoon of sessions dedicated to bringing established suppliers of off-grid services together with international developers and investors (DFIs, banks, commercial and impact investors) and other potential new entrants who are looking to buy into this fast-growing industry.

Held under the Chatham House Rule, proceedings start at 12h30 when participants will benefit from a shared networking lunch with the wide range of private and public sector stakeholders attending the fifth annual AIX Power & Renewables meeting (14-15 November, RSA House).
