GET.invest, in partnership with SolarPower Europe, is organising a workshop at the EU PVSEC 2019 conference in Marseille. The event will inform participants about the financing and technical assistance instruments available through the EU External Investment Plan (EIP) to investors and entrepreneurs active in the clean energy markets of Africa and the EU Neighbourhood region. It will feature presentations, panel discussions and a Q&A session about the various pillars of the EIP, including the European Fund for Sustainable Development, various existing investment facilities and guarantee schemes, such as ElectriFI and Africa GreenCo, as well as technical assistance instruments such as GET.invest.
The EU’s ambitious EIP encourages investment in partner countries in Africa and the EU Neighbourhood region. Its objective is to leverage €44billion worth of investments with an input of €4.5billion in the form of grants and guarantees.
After the event, the speakers and participants are invited to get to know each other at a networking reception.
