The RECP connects African and European developers and investors with the aim of increasing access to renewable energy in Africa. In light of this aim, AEBIOM has partnered with the RECP to engage the bioenergy sector and initiate inter-continental business collaboration.

The event will provide for a brief introduction and opening words by AEBIOM, followed by an equally brief presentation of the RECP, as well as an African case-study/project example from AEBIOM’s membership.

Given the brief nature of the pre-matchmaking programme, there will be no specific thematic focus. The initial presentations will be followed by a three-hour matchmaking block providing a platform for Bioenergy entrepreneurs from Africa and Europe, financiers, service providers, etc. to meet and discuss potential business opportunities.

The event will mainly draw from AEBIOM’s membership and the participants of the main EBF conference, plus sponsored participants by RECP. Additional effort will be undertaken to mobilise additional participants, especially from Africa.
