Researcher Morrison Rwakakamba has been elected Vice President of GOGLA, a global association for the off-grid solar energy industry.
“I am glad to be part of the leadership team that will lead engagements with mostly governments to create a favourable environment that will drive energy access through affordability and bring on table life-changing solutions for millions of households through productive use,” Rwakakamba told ChimpReports on Wednesday.
Established in 2012, GOGLA now represents over 150 members as a neutral, independent, not-for-profit industry association.
Rwakakamba said Gogla is a sanctuary for major energy-sector players in the world to “think deeply and act innovatively to deliver clean energy solutions that will bring light to 1.7billion un-electrified people in the world.”
Rwakakamba, the head of Global Senior Director of Policy at Fenix International, is already a board member of Gogla.
The off-grid solar industry has since gained momentum in recent years, delivering affordable services to households, businesses and communities in challenging developing markets.
Rwakakamba is a former advisor of president Museveni.
