WEBINAR: IRENA Sustainable Energy Marketplace, 26 October

WEBINAR – Promoting Renewable Energy Finance in Africa: IRENA Sustainable Energy Marketplace

Date and time: 26th October, 12:00 – 13:00 pm GMT

A financing need and opportunity of USD 50-55 billion per annum for energy investments
for sustainable development exists in Africa. This is at least five-fold compared to the current
investment levels, calling for remarkable scale-up. To enhance development, bankability and
financing of renewable energy projects IRENA has launched the Sustainable Energy Marketplace
(http://www.irena.org/marketplace). It is a virtual marketplace for renewable energy project
owners and their projects, financiers and service providers in Africa and later on in other developing
countries. IRENA & EEP welcome project owners to this webinar to see how the marketplace works,
how to register your project in the marketplace, and thus get more visibility for your project and
access important information, data and tools.


  • Opening and welcome, EEP, Wim Jonker Klunne, Programme Director
  • Demo and presentation of IRENA’s Sustainable Energy Marketplace, Aleksi Lumijarvi,
  • Programme Officer, Renewable Energy Finance, IRENA
  • Q&A

The total length of the event will be approximately 45 min
