Green People’s Energy is seeking partnerships to enable better access to renewable energies in rural Africa

Do you want to help improve life in in Africa’s villages?

You want to put renewable energies even more into the focus of your work?

Perhaps you are already cooperating with a local community or project?

You are involved in the knowledge exchange on the subject of renewable energies with African organisations?

Then this call from Green People’s Energy can be an interesting opportunity for you to expand your engagement in sub-Saharan Africa.

It’s a call aimed at European actors in the energy transition such as municipalities, educational institutions, cooperatives, non-governmental organisations, associations, or companies.

This market survey may be followed by a competitive procedure (call for tenders).

The BMZ ministerial initiative “Green People’s Energy for Africa” aims to reduce energy poverty in rural regions of Africa and support the development of decentralised renewable energy systems. Citizens as well as local businesses and organisations are closely involved in order to strengthen the productive use of energy, the energy supply for social institutions, and the promotion of framework conditions for sustainable investments.

Green People’s Energy wants to gain an overview of partnership concepts between European and African actors and publish these findings in the publication “Partnerships with Africa – Lessons Learned from Cooperation on equal footing”.


Deadline: 30 June 2021
