The CEO of Soleil Power attended the Transforming Energy Access Forum that was held in the heart of Rwanda’s vibrant capital, Kigali, meant to tackle one of the most pressing challenges of our time: ensuring universal access to clean, reliable, and affordable energy. The forum brought together stakeholders- from policymakers and industry leaders to entrepreneurs and activists to share insights, spark dialogue, and catalyse action towards a more inclusive energy future.

One of the key themes that emerged from the forum was the transformative potential of off-grid solar solutions in bridging the energy gap. With innovations in solar technology and energy storage systems, off-grid communities are now able to access clean electricity, powering homes, schools, and businesses in even the most remote areas. Another highlight of the forum was the emphasis on inclusive financing mechanisms to unlock investment in energy access projects. From impact investors and development banks to microfinance institutions and crowdfunding platforms, there is a growing recognition of the need to mobilize capital for energy access initiatives.

As the Transforming Energy Access Forum concluded, it left a lasting impression on all who participated, inspiring renewed commitment and determination to advance the energy access agenda. By fostering multi-stakeholder collaborations and knowledge sharing, the forum served as a catalyst for collective action and shared learning.
