the Energy Access work stream
The Energy Access work stream under the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) was initiated in April 2016 and is mandated to: close the gaps between public, private, NGO and the academic sector; promote business and technology solutions to effectively tackle energy access; raise public interest for clean energy access as a topic; where necessary, contribute to the SE4All and SDG 7 processes on energy access.
The work stream is part of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP), a long-term framework for strategic dialogue between Africa and the European Union (EU) aimed at sharing knowledge, setting political priorities and developing joint programmes on the key energy issues and challenges in the 21st century. The overall objective of the AEEP is to improve access to secure, affordable and sustainable energy for both continents, with a special focus on increasing investment in energy infrastructure in Africa.
