SOLAR AFRICA – AFRICA´S PRIME SOLAR ENERGY EXPO
About SOLAR KENYA 2018:
The overwhelming response from the Solar Industry has encouraged Expogroup to launch Solar Africa POWER & ENERGY Africa”
The region offers tremendous opportunities to suppliers worldwide, having among the strongest solar resources in the world. In particular, the region offers excellent potential for concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) systems.
Many African countries are currently exploring the use of solar and other renewables, using tenders (or PPAs) as the vehicle for expansion. As incentives in Europe decrease, project developers and investors are keenly interested in deploying solar technologies in Africa. Vast rural areas produce high demand for solar electrification.
Power grids in rural Africa currently tend to be powered by diesel generator sets often running 24 hours each day. While relatively cheap to buy, speedy to install and simple to use, these diesel generator sets burn a lot of fuel, push out CO2 and require a lot of refueling and maintenance. Rising diesel prices and environmental concerns are therefore driving grid operators to reconsider their offering and reduce emissions.
As a medium-sized company, Expogroup began its operations in 1996 starting with export-oriented International Trade Exhibitions in the Middle East & Africa. Since then, it has been organizing annual trade fairs in 14 countries within the region itself. Apart from that, Expogroup has presented several other events in emerging markets such as the CIS, Australia, Latin America & India.
Completing 20 years in the industry, Expogroup has spread its network in more than 37 countries managing more than 20 trade fairs annually in various counties. Most of the hard work was done in absence of modern communication systems and facilities but come another 15 years, we foresee double the growth.
