International Solar Day 2018

Solar energy

15 May 2018

Market: Norway

Location: Multiconsult HQ, Nedre Skøyen vei 2, 0276 Oslo


Join us in sharing your experience and discuss challenges and opportunities in the African market at the International Solar Day organised jointly by Norwegian Energy Partners and Solar Energy Cluster Norway on the 15th of May.

The Norwegian solar cluster is extremely diverse, with materials and equipment suppliers, project developers and investors for grid-connected, microgrid and distributed solutions. Many of the Norwegian solar energy industry participants have experience from project implementation in Africa. We therefore invite you to spend a day together, for sharing your experience, discuss common challenges and try to identify the most interesting markets in Africa for the Norwegian solar companies. We will look at various forms of distributed solutions, microgrid systems and also larger solar energy projects. Since grid connected floating and offshore solar is high on the agenda for some of partners, we will also discuss this as a possible solution for Africa.

We invited developers, suppliers, investors and funding agencies as well as authorities and organisations to review market opportunities, challenges, trends and solutions. Questions we wish to elaborate include:

  • What are the lessons learned in selected markets in Africa?
  • What can we do to as a nation to mitigate risks?
  • Which markets should we define as priority markets?
  • How can we make profitable projects in Africa ?

Agenda for the day is in the making and will be published shortly.

Time and date: 15th May 08:30 – 16:00 (TBC)
Venue: Multiconsult HQ, Nedre Skøyen vei 2, 0276 Oslo
There is no participant fee for this event.
