3rd International Off-grid Renewable Energy Conference and Exhibition (IOREC)
The conference is organized by IRENA, in partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Energy and Petroleum and the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE).
IOREC is the global platform for sharing experience and best practices on the design and implementation of enabling policies, tailored financing schemes, innovative business models and technology applications for stand-alone and mini-grid systems. The first edition of IOREC was organised in Accra, Ghana in 2012 and the second in Manila, Philippines, in 2014. The conference convenes diverse stakeholders from the sector, gathers perspectives on key deployment barriers and facilitates dialogue to highlight solutions to accelerate rural electrification through off-grid renewable energy systems.
In parallel with the Conference, ARE will organise an exhibition to give the private sector an opportunity to showcase products/projects, and offer participants networking opportunities.
