Grid Efficiency and Resilience (GEAR)

GEAR exists to improve electricity grid efficiency and resilience in emerging markets.

GEAR offers technical assistance to utilities and governments to increase the efficiency, reliability and resilience of electricity grids. Its mission is to maximise the amount of electricity delivered to households and businesses in emerging markets, thereby accelerating socio-economic development and reducing GHG emissions.

GEAR was initiated by the International Copper Association (ICA), the International Energy Agency (IEA), Sustainable Energy for All (SEforAll), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), African Forum for Utility Regulators (AFUR), Association of Power Utilities of Africa (APUA), United for Efficiency (U4E) and is managed by the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE).
