PowerAfrica 2017

IEEE Smart Village ISV was well represented at the 2017 PowerAfrica Conference in Accra, Ghana. This year’s theme was Harnessing Energy, Information and Communications Technology for Affordable Electrification of Africa, and ISV co-founder and chairman Ray Larsen was featured as a keynote speaker.

Nearly 50 ISV program partners, energy entrepreneurs, and volunteers from around the world gathered for workshops and the opportunity to share lessons learned, hear about newly developed and piloted ISV technology for their microutilities, and discuss challenges in the field. True to our mission of providing support and mentorship to those doing this critical work, ISV is pleased to have sponsored travel for nine individuals to attend this prestigious event.
