Southern Africa Solar: A Public Sector Reverse Trade Mission to the U.S.

Dates: January 20-30, 2013

Locations: Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles and San Francisco, CA; Washington, DC; Denver, CO

This year, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency is sponsoring a technical workshop and two Reverse Trade Missions (RTM) to foster U.S.-Southern African partnerships in the implementation of solar power projects in Southern Africa. The Workshop and RTMs will expose participants and delegates to state-of-the-art U.S. technologies, equipment and services as well as policies, regulations and financing mechanisms that can support the implementation of solar projects.

This first Reverse Trade Mission is scheduled for January 20-30, 2013 and will include delegates representing public sector organizations from South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. The delegates will meet with U.S. Government organizations and U.S. companies and tour solar project sites in Las Vegas, NV; Los Angeles and San Francisco, CA; Washington, DC; and Denver, CO.
