C&I projects in Africa

November 30, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In Africa, the bulk of C&I solar PV installations is centred on commercial, tourism, manufacturing, and extractive industry sectors, with shopping centres becoming an increasingly important sub-segment. 

This growing industry is often marred by access to debt financing from local and international markets due to the small capacity size of C&I projects. In addition, regulations for these small projects can prove to be a hindrance.

In this live information sharing webinar, GoodWe and Elum Energy help you to discover what makes Africa such an attractive solar market, the challenges that come with developing C&I projects in the region, and the optimal solutions based on case studies.

The panel will address how partnering with more experienced international developers may help local developers and project owners with a smaller track record to obtain financing for their C&I solar installations.

Discussion topics include: 

  • Overview of the current C&I solar PV and battery storage market
  • The challenges faced in building C&I plants
  • The possible solutions to execute new projects
  • Case studies of actual projects completed

The panel of experts are

Andrew Tyler, sales & business development manager for sub-Saharan Africa | GoodWe
David Havenga, technical manager for Southern Africa | GoodWe
Gabriel Rechard, sales manager for sub-Saharan Africa | Elum Energy
