SolarPlaza: Solar Energy Facts & Figures 2018 Africa

August 29, 2018

FMO is a proud organising partner of the second edition of Unlocking Solar Capital Africa - an industry-unique conference dedicated to exploring the ways to unlock capital for solar development in Africa.

Africa is quickly becoming one of the most significant regions in the global expansion of the solar PV industry. The high levels of solar irradiation, extreme (and growing) energy demand - with 600 million Africans not yet served by up-to-date electricity solutions - and an increasing amount of renewable energy related commitments by governments in the region are just some of the factors that are sparking growing interest from local businesses and international stakeholders alike.

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the key facts and figures related to some of the most prominently developing solar markets on the continent, serving as well as a prelude to the third edition of the Unlocking Solar Capital Africa conference, taking place on  7-8 November 2018 in Kigali, Rwanda.
