As a proud partner key deliverable to SEforALL the ARE Energy Access Investment Forum is a well-established political exchange and business supporting platform to assist ARE Members, partners, panellists, participants and interested stakeholders from the private and public sector in their efforts to run their clean energy access activities more effectively by: 

  • getting informed early on about future off-grid sector developments and upcoming initiatives and
  • identifying and getting introduced to the most interesting actors to present their own business proposals.

Based on the good feedback received from participants as well as from Members and Partners on the four previous ARE Fora, it is the objective of ARE – also in respect of its grown Membership of 150+ Members -  to continue taking leadership as the voice of the industry for sustainable decentralised clean energy solutions and to organise the 5th edition of the ARE Energy Access Investment Forum in 2019.
