business mission kenya rwanda


The European project ESECA is organizing a second business mission to Nairobi, Kenya from October 2 to 6, 2023 and/or to Kigali, Rwanda from October 10 to 13. You can choose to take part in one or both missions! The aim is to make European companies from the renewable energies and smart grids sectors meet Kenyan and Rwandan energy stakeholders and start partnerships with local companies.

This activity is primarily aimed at SMEs and start-ups. This mission is a unique opportunity to develop your business and take part in international events!

Provisional agenda:
The mission to Kenya will take place within the framework of the POWERELEC International Trade Fair & Conference on Power, Energy, Renewable & Electrical Industry, and the Renewable Energy Forum Africa (REFA 2023) conference organized by the African Solar Energy Association and SolarPower Europe.

> POWERELEC is the largest international trade fair dedicated exclusively to the energy, renewable energies and electricity sectors. It will provide access to international organizations, suppliers, investors, technology experts and EPC companies.

> The Renewable Energy Forum Africa (REFA) is an annual conference that promotes investment in renewable energy on the African continent. The event is supported by a European program (GET.invest) which aims to mobilize investment in decentralized renewable energies.

During the mission to Rwanda, you will participate in an event dedicated to R&D projects, in collaboration with AfriLabs. You will also have the opportunity to take part in the LEAP-RE Stakeholder Forum, which aims to create and develop an international multi-stakeholder community dealing with renewable energies (innovation, training, financing and deployment policies).
