    Renpower Rwanda 2019 – The Off-Grid Renewable Energy, Power Infrastructure Investors Conference Date: 28th February 2019 Location: Kigali, Rwanda With the Rwandan government having set the goal of 100% electricity access by 2024, the government is seeking to boost the country’s green economic development by opening the doors to investors in various renewable energy projects in the country.
