Energy access events at COP27

News |

Access to clean energy to accelerate the green transition and decrease climate impact will be debated at the COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh (Egypt). Check our events and join our discussions.

We welcome you to join our side events about clean energy access to underserved people in rural areas at the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh (Egypt) from 6 – 18 November 2022.

The events will bring together both Nordic and international key actors working with supporting implementation of energy access and discuss how to support private companies, i.e. energy service providers, to scale up its businesses and enter new markets and the positive impacts this will have for people living in rural and peri-urban areas in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Check the schedule of our events beneath. Find all events at COP organised by Nefco on Join our events online or in Egypt.
