SolarPower Europe and GET.invest have joined forces to realise broad and sustained market development of renewable energies in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP) region. The new partnership leverages GET.invest’s technical expertise and SolarPower Europe’s network to mobilise European and ACP solar enterprises for joint business development. Low-cost solar has enormous potential to enable socio-economic development for communities as well as businesses in emerging markets. The joint activities of GET.invest – a European programme supported by the European Union, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria – and SolarPower Europe tackle a number of the economic, financial and technical challenges that prevent scaling solar in many of these places.
