Consultant to conceptualise and develop 3-4 Africa RENdez-vous

The intent of the Africa RENdezvous series (RDV Africa) is to understand how to mainstream
renewables in Africa’s economic development. This means:
1. understanding and candidly discussing what renewable energy means for Africa
2. recognising and understand the drivers and drags
3. identifying and building on common interests across a broad range of stakeholders

For renewables to be at the heart of the continent’s energy future we need to build up societal and
market acceptance. While there are numerous conversations around the energy transition in Africa
they remain predominately in the political sphere, e.g., AU EU partnership; AEEP Dialogue Series etc.
What is missing is the African perspective on renewable energy and its role in the continent’s
economic development. To strengthen the African voice in the debate and bring in differing
perspectives, REN21 created RDV Africa.

The timeline for the work is 1 June 30 September (for 3 RDV) of 30 October (for 4 RDV).
