Over the last five years, participants and sponsors have used AIX: Power & Renewables to hold private meetings with new and already established partners in convenient break-out rooms at RSA House.
Last year we worked with KfW and the Africa Trade Insurance Agency, who chose AIX: Power & Renewables to launch their Regional Liquidity Support Facility.
In 2016, AIX Power & Renewables was chosen for the launch of the Africa Infrastructure Development Association (AfIDA), a think-tank and network to promote and enable project development in Africa. AfIDA returned in 2017 as sponsor of our evening reception and host of an exclusive workshop on establishing guidelines for power developers.
