About The Forum
Somalis pay some of the highest energy tariffs in the world, crippling business growth and tightening household budgets. Yet the country has some of the greatest potential in Africa for onshore wind power and solar generation.
In response to Somali local demand, Shuraako hosted the Somali Renewable Energy Forum 2016 (SREF 2016). The SREF 2016 aimed to advance dialogue and development of the Somali energy sector - a sector that is positioned to have the greatest single positive impact across all industries and the potential to boost the country’s economic growth. Key stakeholders took part in changing the course of Somalia’s energy sector.
