Solar Diesel is the unique deal-making event that connects intensive African energy users with solar project developers, financiers and solution providers to realise cost saving fuel displacement solutions. 

Solar energy is cheaper than diesel. By integrating solar energy into new or existing diesel generation grids, over a third of the fuel consumption can be displaced. Payback periods of 4-5 years have been realized for off-grid systems, while on-grid intensive energy users can rely on solar to secure uninterrupted power supply. Both technical and financial solutions to go solar with zero upfront capital and at minimum risk are available. Explore this exciting business opportunity.
