Empowering Rural Electrification

On September 29-30th 2014, Sahara Wind will attend the European Commission's Workshop on Empowering Rural Electrification held in Brussels, Belgium. 

As a leader in the global drive to provide access to modern sustainable energy services the European Commission is launching a profound examination of new financial opportunities to support Rural Electrification. In a two day Workshop hosted by the EC in Brussels on 29-30 September, 2014, a variety of stakeholders will have the opportunity to discuss new possibilities for providing financial support to Rural Electrification projects through a joint effort by the private sector and civil society organisations, and to share experiences and to identify common practices. One of the objectives will be to identify successful business models for accelerated roll-out of energy access in rural communities.

The conference is organized by the Directorate General for Development and Cooperation – EuropeAid
