The International Off-grid Renewable Energy Conference and Exhibition (IOREC) is a flagship event of IRENA and acts as the global platform for sharing experiences and best practices on design and implementation of enabling policies, tailored financing schemes, innovative business models and technology applications for stand-alone and mini-grid systems. It is convened every two years, with the first four editions of the event taking place in Accra, Ghana in 2012, Manila, Philippines in 2014, Nairobi, Kenya in 2016, and Singapore in 2018. The fifth edition of IOREC was held virtually in December 2021.
The 6th edition of IOREC will take place in Abuja, Nigeria on 3rd and 4th November 2022 under the umbrella of International Energy Transition Week (IETW). The event is expected to attract subject experts from around the world and across the off-grid renewable energy sector. The plenary sessions will begin with a high-level dialogue led by energy leaders. Representatives championing the cause and working on energy access through decentralised renewable energy (DRE) - government counter parts, rural electrification agencies, financing institutions, policy & regulatory think tanks, private sector, NGOs, academia, and international organisations will participate in the 2-day event, deliberating on enabling policies, financing schemes, innovative business models and technology applications for scaling up decentralised renewable energy for access. Particular attention will be paid to the nexus between energy access and other key development priorities such as food, water and health services.
The Conference will provide partners with the opportunity to present their initiatives, exchange best practices and facilitate the identification of synergies and partnerships. In this context, technical deep dive sessions will be organised in addition to the thematic plenary sessions. Furthermore, innovators, practitioners and entrepreneurs from the off-grid renewable energy space will have the opportunity to showcase their products and services in the exhibition, organised by the Alliance for Rural Electrification, to be held through the 5-days of the IETW.
The Alliance for Rural Electrification is the official iindustry partner of the upcoming IOREC.
