The European Development Days are a key forum for leaders and stakeholders to openly address global challenges and develop innovative solutions. This year’s edition represents the flagship event of the European Year for Development, under the thread of 'Our world, Our dignity, Our future'.
The EUEI PDF, in cooperation with Alliance for Rural Electrification, hosted a session at the 2015 Edition of the EDD on Thursday, June 4th 2015 in Brussels. The topic of the discussion was Financing of Innovative Sustainable Energy Solutions: Bridging the gap between the potential and investments for renewable energy projects in developing countries. Addressing the forum’s topic on Sustainable Energy for Growth, we brought together experts to discuss issues related to sustainable energy investments mobilisation, such as innovative business models, forms and volumes of financing required, and gaps in the landscape of support instruments.
This interactive session focused on topics related to small and meso-scale on-grid renewables, as well as mini-grids and standalone systems for rural electrification.
