Fourth International African Renewable Energy Alliance (AREA) Conference

Como (Lombardia), Italy
From: 22.05.2012 to: 26.06.2012

This Conference, organized by the World Future Council and the African Renewable Energy Alliance (AREA) on the theme, “Access to Sustainable Renewable Energy in Africa as Prerequisite for the MDGs”, will be held from 22 to 26 May 2012, in Como, Italy. As 2012 marks the UN International Year of Sustainable Energy for All, the AREA will focus on identifying and promoting the necessary frameworks and instruments for the scaling up of access to renewable energy for all African citizens to improve their livelihoods and to protect the environment. The Conference will consider the evaluation and dissemination of proven models for access to renewable energy, and focus on four models: micro-financed off-grid systems; mini-grids in connection with telecommunication infrastructure; financing mechanisms for thermal applications; and scaling up access by switching from fossil to renewable.
