Sustainable Energy Marketplace

27 October 2015 | Energy Transition


Presentation and demo of IRENA’s new online marketplace for renewable energy projects in Africa, the Sustainable Energy Marketplace. The Sustainable Energy Marketplace will help to develop and drive investments in new renewable energy projects in Africa, and thus support in scaling up investments towards the annual USD 50 billion need and opportunity in Africa, in order to provide universal access to modern energy in Africa by 2030. The platform brings together project owners, financiers, service & technology providers and governments.

Users of the platform can register and:

  • Search for information of interest like projects with certain investment criteria, or financing sources and advisors according to specific needs of a project;
  • Find information about and contact relevant entities, projects or financing instruments;
  • Access project development tools and useful country-level data on markets, regulations and incentives;
  • Create a virtual data room for projects to organize and share confidential information with selected financiers, advisors, etc.; and
  • Communicate directly with IRENA on specific needs and interests.

In this webinar IRENA will describe how the marketplace works and what are the benefits for the registered project owners and developers. The participation in this hands-on webinar is important not only to understand the concept and benefits but also to show in practice how the registration works, what information will be requested from project owners in order to join the platform, and how to use the marketplace. During the webinar the participants will also be able to ask questions from IRENA regarding the marketplace.

The agenda for the webinar is as follows:

  • Opening words
  • Presentation of the renewable energy marketplace concept
  • Online demo of the marketplace and its features
  • Q&A

The total length of the webinar is 45 minutes.
