HYDROPOWER IS FOCUSING ON AFRICA’S FUTURE
Hydropower today supplies 32 percent of Africa’s total energy supply. However, with a current capacity of 20 GW per year the Hydropower potential is only used by about seven percent. Many hydropower projects are funded by a development cooperation between Europe and Africa.
CONNECTING AFRICAN AND EUROPEAN DEVLOPERS AND INVESTORS
In 2017, the Small Hydropower Chapter of the European Renewable Energies Federation (EREF) organised a hydropower workshop in conjunction with a matchmaking event during the RENEXPO Interhydro European hydropower trade fair and conference.
Both events have been organised in cooperation with the Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP), a multi-donor programme that supports the development of markets for renewable energy in Africa.
RENEXPO INTERHYDRO 2018
It is planned again to have a hydropower workshop in conjunction with a matchmaking event during the RENEXPO INTERHYDRO 2018.
