RiA Joins ARE

Renewables in Africa

* I ni ce  my dear RiA Friend,

How are you keeping?  Still Holidaying? I know it has a little while and RiA has been silent over the past few weeks but don’t panic, TWO excellent reasons!

Renewables in Africa  joins Alliance for Rural Electrification

Oh YES!  We could officially announce that RiA has formally become a member of the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE). We are strongly advocating for the implementation of the SDG7 – Ensure access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable and modern energy for all.

Through our membership to ARE, we are looking forward to engage with other members and non-members and are confident to make progress though our collaboration. Joining forces is certainly the way to go to tackle the SEforALL challenge and we are hoping many other partners will join. So don’t  be shy and get involved! A good friend of mine ,Mr Rob Neil,  a champion for equality usually says: “Involve to evolve”. As usual, he is on point!


  • What is ARE?
