“ESMAP estimates that achieving universal access by 2030 will require the construction of more than 210,000 mini grids, mostly solar hybrids, connecting 490 million people at an investment cost of almost $220 billion dollars.”

In Africa, mini grids have been identified as a key platform to address critical electrification shortages. Creating successful mini grid ecosystems beyond pilot projects is now the focus of African governments facing severe shortages especially for their off-grid populations. Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, and Ghana are just some of the countries with frameworks and supportive policies to expand energy access through mini grids. Foundations, donors and organizations are stepping-up their financial support for mini grids as momentum gears-up towards universal energy access by 2030.

Africa has the largest share of planned mini grids. World Bank data shows that more than 4,000 mini grids are currently being planned. The two largest markets for planned mini grids in Africa are Senegal and Nigeria – these two countries alone account for about 2,000 of the 4,000 planned mini grids in Africa.

We invite you to join us in Nairobi at the 6th Africa Mini Grids Summit to network, share and learn from governments, regulators, utilities, investors, project developers, financiers, donor agencies, and technology and solutions providers. Get the latest updates on country programs and business cases for mini grids in Africa. Analyse the building blocks and mechanics behind various implementation models and gain insights on how to overcome the pain points still plaguing the industry.

Government officers, international experts, private sector players and investors will come together to share insights and solutions, discuss case studies, and engage in robust panel debates on how to scale-up successful mini grid projects in Africa.

Do not miss the Field Visit to the Oloika Solar Mini Grid Project in Kajiado County, Kenya

This enriching site visit to a live mini grid project will enable participants to understand first-hand the social, technical, economic and humanitarian benefits of this project and how it was executed. The project is joint-funded by Energy for Development (e4D) - who provided the generation costs - and the Rural Electrification Authority (REA), Kenya - who provided the civil work and distribution grid.
