The Solar Indaba, South Africa's first official PV conference, not only comes with the backing of the government, thus guaranteeing their participation in crucial discussions but as the industry’s first official PV congress, represents the biggest PV focussed networking event in South Africa.
 

What makes the Solar Indaba different?

1. The ONLY PV Industry event in partnership with SAPVIA: Preventing fragmented attendance across multiple events and bringing a network of buyers & sellers together in one marketplace

2. Guaranteed ministerial attendance: VIP pre-day consultations to Chatham House rules (22 Oct) & at open forum debates (23-24 Oct)

3. Event proceeds injected into funding research studies & advocacy efforts: Contributing to continued PV sector development

4. Unique new priority pass scheme: Welcoming EPCs, installers and commercial & industrial energy managers with buying power

5. Industry led advisory board and expert moderators delving into new depths, breaking the deadlock and delegating actionable follow up on key issues

The world's most promising solar market?

An IRP Commitment of 9.7GW of PV by 2030, additional allocations in REIPPP 3rd bid window, tier 1 PV equipment suppliers setting up new  production factilities and an electricity market struggling to meet demand.

Opportunities in both the REIPPP and in embedded generation are starting to position South Africa as a top priority on the global solar market.

Plus as other African countries look to follow South Africa's lead, don't miss the co-located track on emerging PV opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa
