Energy Access COVID-19 Relief Summit            

It is with great pleasure that ARE and GOGLA, supported by GET.invest and in partnership with AMDA, ESMAP, GDC and SEforALL, invite you to participate in our first-ever virtual Energy Access Summit!

The COVID-19 pandemic represents a massive shock for societies and economies around the world and threatens to reverse the enormous progress that off-grid energy companies have made in bringing power to 470 million people in the last decade. The pandemic especially jeopardises the survival of many micro, small to medium enterprises (MSMEs) companies that are essential for the energy access ecosystem in the short and medium term.

Now more than ever, the off-grid sector requires accessible finance. This is why ARE and GOGLA have joined forces with GET.invest – a European programme supported by the European Union, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria.

Considering social distancing measures and travel restrictions imposed globally, this event will leverage existing digital technologies to bring together a multitude of relief providers, financing experts, sector leaders, enterprises, as well as philanthropies and public sector stakeholders.



The 2-day event will feature:

  • Overview and presentations of relief instruments available
  • Discussions on the status quo of the energy access sector, as well as scenario risks and needs for companies
  • Interactive discussions on finance and relief needs and gaps, as well as on the future of the energy access sector
  • Virtual B2B matchmaking sessions to network and exchange in one-on-one sessions
