To create and sustain a living body of practical knowledge and a network of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) practitioners for the design, development, and implementation of rural, peri-urban, and urban on-grid and off-grid electrification programs. The initiative emphasizes mitigating barriers and promoting solutions to SSA electrification access through the provision of proven, practical information in a user friendly format, through simple and sustainable communication channels.
Support for the creation of a network of African practitioners, including representatives from rural energy agencies and funds, government ministries, and regulatory agencies and from state, community, and privately owned utilities that collectively make up a network of electrification “thinkers” and “doers” across SSA.
