RES4Africa, IFC promoting private investment in Africa’s Power Grid


RES4Africa Foundation and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) held the first in a series of development partner forums on November 22 to promote private sector investment to increase and complement the limited available financing in Africa’s power grid.
The virtual workshop brought together development partners, public institutions and private sector parties from across Africa to share knowledge and best practices to promote public-private partnerships and investments in transmission infrastructure projects.
The aim of the forum series is to identify the key issues stakeholders face with financing power transmission infrastructure projects and identify solutions to these issues. The Foundation’s Grids4Africa program will disseminate a position paper based on the discussion inputs to stimulate increased investment in transmission infrastructure.
