Access to sustainable energy has undoubtedly gained political recognition since 2012, specifically marked by the adoption of SDG7 and the launch of Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) and the African Renewable Energy Initiative (AREI). With the global impetus towards achieving the goals set, an increasing number of stakeholders are working in this sector, delivering on initiatives and programmes, specifically in Africa.
This website presents an overview of the high-level initiatives and programmes in the energy sector across Africa that aim to further the goals of SEforALL: to increase energy access, to increase the proportion of renewable energy in the energy mix, and to improve energy efficiency. Information is provided on multilateral, bilateral and country-specific initiatives in Africa that support governments, project developers and implementers in achieving SDG 7.
The aim of the website is to help stakeholders coordinate their efforts, leverage synergies and address key gaps in the market. It is in the spirit of coordination and harmonisation that the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) and SEforALL Africa Hub have developed this database.
