BANKING ON SOLAR: Rand Merchant Bank announced as headline sponsor for Solar Power Africa

Solar Power Africa, the first event of its kind dedicated to Solar Power and Energy Storage, is proud to announce Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) as the headline sponsor.


The event will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 16-18 February 2022, with a focus on ensuring attendees fully capitalize on the opportunities of solar and energy storage in Africa.


RMB prides itself on strategic sponsorships that reinforce their value proposition and allow them to move beyond the scope of banking to benefit the individuals and communities in which they operate.


“RMB is committed to enabling the future of renewable energy. We have a deep understanding of the sector and have become a trusted partner, delivering innovative funding solutions for renewable energy projects across Africa,” said Daniel Zinman, Head of Power and Renewables in RMB’s Infrastructure Sector Solutions team.


South Africa has the potential to take the lead in Africa’s transition to a green economy. The development of solar power projects will enable the country to meet its climate commitments as well as ensure security of supply for both domestic and commercial electricity users.


“We are delighted to have the support of RMB for the forthcoming Solar Power Africa event. The roster of speakers and exhibitors is testament to the strength of the sector, which is only set to grow as investors seek to make more sustainable investments.


“We are looking forward to supporting industry, financiers and government capitalize on this dynamic sector,” said Joshua Low, Group exhibitions Director, Messe Frankfurt South Africa.


Organised by Messe Frankfurt, and in partnership with the South African Photovoltaic Industry Association (SAPVIA), Solar Power Africa is a 3-day event where attendees will benefit from direct access to expert insights and solutions to a range of challenges, as well as key trends and developments in the renewable energy market.


The event is presented in partnership with one of the largest solar power and related industry shows in the world – Solar Power Events (SPE), the premier organizer for energy events throughout North America.
