ARIS seeks to help accelerate renewable energy investment in Africa by connecting investors with potential renewable energy project investment opportunities in Africa.

Despite having the world’s largest renewable energy potential, the continent receives less than 2% of all global renewable energy investment. ARIS seeks to help play a role in cataylsing investment for Africa, to help plug the continent’s energy supply gap. With almost half of Africa’s 1,2 billion population is still not electrified, renewable energy presents the best opportunity to accelerate energy access, and end energy poverty on the African continent.

An estimated US$70 billion in yearly renewable energy investments is required for Africa to meet its electrification targets by 2030, according to a report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
