A research report we produced with Catalyst Off-Grid Advisors in 2017 shows that the off-grid energy sector in Africa requires $32 billion of capital, including $1 billion of catalytic grant/blended capital, plus funding to address a $4 billion affordability gap for underserved populations that cannot afford entry-level systems.

Webinar panelists will discuss the capital gap and potential solutions, before an interactive Q&A session with the audience.
The webinar is being co-hosted by the Clean Energy Solutions Center in partnership with United Nations Foundation's Energy Access Practitioner Network.
