PLEASE NOTE: Due to the lapse in U.S. Government appropriations, USAID will be postponing the “Emerging Markets for U.S. Smart Grid Suppliers and Investors Forum” scheduled for January 9th at USAID’s Conference Center located in Concourse McFadden. A new date will be announced upon resolution of the partial government shutdown.

Please visit the Smart Grid Forum website or the events page on Climatelinks for announcements on the rescheduling of this forum, which will focus on market opportunities in developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America for U.S. companies that provide smart grid and mini-grid products and services.
