10 specially selected clean and renewable energy projects from around Africa will present their business plans at the Forum. The projects were selected for their commercial viability and environmental benefits from over 65 project proposals and have all received intensive coaching on the preparation of their business plans and investor pitches from CTI PFAN professional advisors. A number of the best other projects from the AFRICEF applicants will also be in attendance at the Forum.
For investors, AFRICEF is a great opportunity to access a select group of clean energy projects with high profit potential, which have benefited from expert advice and coaching. It also provides a place to network with those entrepreneurs, project developers and other market participants and learn more about the market for clean energy investment and financing in Africa. For those interested investors, one-on-one meetings with project developers will be arranged during the morning of 16 September 2010.
