Power Africa Coordinator Andrew M. Herscowitz will travel to Ohio and Michigan with a U.S. Government Interagency team, from July 9 to 12, to visit a number of U.S. companies and facilities, many of which are current Power Africa partners. Power Africa is a U.S. Government-led partnership coordinated by the U.S. Agency for International Development that aims to double access to electricity in sub-Saharan Africa through private sector investment.

While in Ohio and Michigan, the Power Africa team's site visits will include First Solar's manufacturing facility, Novi Energy, and the University of Michigan's Battery Lab. In Ann Arbor on July 11, the team will also participate in a U.S. Business Roundtable, hosted by the U.S. Department of Commerce's Detroit U.S. Export Assistance Center, which is open to the press.
