Africa is paving the way to a bright solar future driven by a conviction: Solar Energy is the best ally to move forward. AFSIA will take advantage of this momentum by expanding the use of solar power in Africa and strengthen the regional solar energy industry in all its diversity. AFSIA is the reference association for solar professionals in Africa. The association is headquartered in Kigali, Rwanda and carries out solar-related activities and programs across Africa. Its regional coverage stretches from Egypt to South-Africa, from Cape Verde to Madagascar. AFSIA promotes solar power in the African region from largescale grid-connected projects to off-grid solar home systems, through hybrid systems including diesel and storage to solar water pumping, solar stoves or solar water heaters. AFSIA organizes networking opportunities for solar professionals and gives them access to the right information and the right network to expand their business and strengthen the solar industry across the continent.
