As the officially labelised side-event of COP22, the Africa Renewable Energy Forum was first held in Marrakesh from 2-4 November 2016 under the aegis of the Ministry of Energy of Morocco and endorsed by ONEE. This year the forum will take place from 30 November – 1 December in Casablanca, the second Forum returns to Morocco this year to build its foundation as the pan-African meeting for stakeholders driving forward renewable energy projects in Africa.
ARF will bring together government ministers, heads of African utilities and some of the biggest global investors in renewable energy to discuss solutions to move forward renewable energy projects. The first forum attracted over 300 high level international participants, including 11 African countries represented at senior government and utility level.
With Morocco and South Africa leading the way for renewable energy development in Africa, the Africa Renewable Energy Forum will also focus on mapping renewable energy projects and identifying financing instruments, strategies and practical approaches for the development of clean energy projects with a particular focus on procurement of IPPs, regional integration, R&D and climate finance.
