AlphaMundi Kenya team attended the 3rd edition of the International Off-Grid Renewable Energy Conference and Exhibition (IOREC) that took place in Nairobi, Kenya on 30 September and 1 October 2016.
The Conference was organized by IRENA in partnership with the Kenya Ministry of Energy & Petroleum and the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE). The conference brought together over 550 stakeholders from across the off-grid renewable energy value chain, including representatives from rural electrification agencies, ministries in charge of renewable energy development, private sector, academia, financing institutions and international organisations.
IOREC is the global platform for sharing experience and best practices about design and implementation of enabling policies, tailored financing schemes, innovative business models and technology applications for stand-alone and mini-grid systems.
The first edition of IOREC was organised in Accra, Ghana in 2012 and the second in Manila, Philippines, in 2014. The conference convenes diverse stakeholders from the sector, gathers perspectives on key deployment barriers and facilitates dialogue to highlight solutions to accelerate rural electrification through off-grid renewable energy systems.
