The RECP, a development programme funded by the European Commission and several EU member states, supports the development of vibrant renewable energy markets on the African continent. It facilitates African and European business cooperation through the provision of market information, the identification of specific project opportunities and targeted match-making activities. Further, the RECP supports projects in Africa in reaching bankability and connects them with financiers seeking investment opportunities.
While many European solar companies are increasingly interested in Africas rapidly developing energy markets, its often difficult to find reliable information or partners, and access to these markets. To close this gap, SolarPower Europe and the RECP formed a partnership. Under the partnership, SolarPower Europe will inform its members of RECPs services and be their first point of information. The RECP will support and advise companies entering into the African solar market. Lastly, RECP will also support companies in identifying the right source of funding for their projects in Africa.
RECP is currently preparing to roll out the core of its advisory services in early 2016 and we will keep all our members updated on upcoming cooperation opportunities and services offered by RECP.
