Solar Power Africa will take place 16 to 18 February 2022.

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

RMB prides itself on strategic sponsorships that reinforce its value proposition and allow it to move beyond the scope of banking to benefit the individuals and communities in which it operates.

“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 domestic, commercial and industrial electricity users.

Joshua Low, Group Exhibitions Director, Messe Frankfurt South Africa, said, “We are delighted to have the support of RMB for the Solar Power Africa event. The line-up of speakers and exhibitors points to the strength of the sector, which is only set to grow as investors seek to make more sustainable investments.”

Organised by Messe Frankfurt and in partnership with the South African Photovoltaic Industry Association (SAPVIA), Solar Power Africa is a three-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.

Messe Frankfurt is one of the world’s largest trade fair, congress and event organisers and operates across 30 different locations globally. The South African office has an experienced staff of over 35 team members with established marketing, sales and operational capabilities.

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 organiser for energy events in North America.
