EnergyNet proudly hosted the Africa Renewable Energy Forum under the aegis of  the Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment of The Kingdom Of Morocco in Marrakech from 2 - 4 November 2016. It was three truly exciting days of meetings and knowledge-sharing.

Held under the umbrella of the UN COP22 Climate Change Conference, the Africa Renewable Energy Forum, in partnership with Global Nexus, the Institute of Research in Solar Energy and New Energies (IRESEN), ONEE and The Department of Energy of South Africa, utilised the outcomes of COP21 and COP22 as a springboard to continued investment and Africa’s growth; it also strategically created a COP22 legacy for Africa as the annual leading renewable energy gathering of governments, energy, environment and finance ministries, national utilities, regulators and rural electrification agencies across the continent, along with DFIs and private sector investors. 
 
 
At the end of 2015, the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) gathered together at the COP21 in Paris. Adopted by 195 countries, officially signed by 179 and ratified by 20, the most important achievement of the Paris agreement is the worldwide commitment to fight climate change throughout the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).
 
The responsibility of COP22 in Marrakech this year was to enforce the diplomatic agreement with actions and implementation plans. In fact, the COP22 is called the “COP for actions” but it is also the “COP for AllAfrica, providing the opportunity for Africa to lead the way in renewable energy development to fight climate change.
