Intersolar South America is today the world's leading exhibition series for the solar industry. This year’s trade fair will take place Expo Center Norte and focuses on the areas of photovoltaics, PV production technologies, energy storage and solar thermal technologies. Since being founded, Intersolar has become the most important industry platform for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners of the solar industry.

As a result of an established partnership with Intersolar, ARE will organise and implement a half-day information and mobilisation Workshop on Off-Grid Rural Electrification on 22 August 2017 with high-level speakers from the public and private sector.

The workshop, which will end with a networking reception, will cover:

  • Latin America: outlook on renewable off-grid energy.
  • Policy frameworks and financing setup for clean off-grid rural electrification in Latin America
  • Smart Renewable Energy: Industrial Micro/Mini-Grid Concepts & Technologies / PV / Storage Systems
  • Renewable energies and their role in rural development.

In addition, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and ARE have expressed their interest to work together with the common objective to promote SEforALL targets. The half-day information and mobilisation workshop will also serve as a platform to collect case studies in the region for a joint publication which will address innovative business models for clean energy access (private sector) and key recommendations for best working regulatory frameworks (public sector) for Latin America and the Caribbean. Interested in contributing with a case study or to assist with developing key recommendations for the public sector? Contact us.
