Registration open for second GBE-ARE webinar

The Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) and Green People’s Energy have the pleasure to invite you to participate in the webinar on “Stimulating Demand for Productive Use of Renewable Energy Solutions in Local Communities” at 14.00-15.30 CEST on 7 July 2021.

The webinar is part of ‘Paving the way for Clean Energy Transition with Decentralised Renewable Energy (PWCET) Series.’

Decentralised renewable energy (DRE) solutions have the potential to drive green, sustainable and inclusive rural transformation, reduce poverty and improve the livelihoods and climate resilience of rural populations as they provide access to affordable, reliable and clean energy. PURE can be a significant driver of economic growth and social progress in developing countries.

The webinar will dive into what it takes to stimulate demand for and an uptake of PURE solutions in rural communities and will under a holistic approach address the different aspects of the PURE ecosystem. The speakers will delve into the challenges and barriers, present examples of innovative solutions and highlight the opportunities of productive use activities to improve the livelihoods of rural communities.

About the PWCET webinar series:
The web seminar series “Paving the way for Clean Energy Transition with Decentralised Renewable Energy (PWCET)” aims not only to contribute to awareness raising, but also to strengthen the mutual exchange of information and knowledge between the numerous actors in the decentralised renewable energy sector.
The first event took place at the EU-Africa Business Forum.

Each web seminar lasts between 90 and 120 minutes and is dedicated to different topics. The variety of topics ranges from the productive use of energy, e.g. further processing of food, as well as its cooling or drying, to solar-powered irrigation systems, financial instruments and e-mobility, as well as education and health. The topics finally selected will also be based on the feedback from the participants and their questions.

We look forward to meeting you there!
