An Affordable and Sustainable Energy System for Sub-Saharan Africa

“An Affordable and Sustainable Energy System for Sub-Saharan Africa” is a 4-year (2019-2023) programme funded by the European Union that is designed to support the aspirations of selected countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to improve their energy data management and long-term energy planning.

The programme long-term objective is to create sustainable and inclusive economic growth in selected Sub-Saharan African countries through the transition towards a low-carbon and climate-resilient energy sector, while delivering universal and affordable energy access to all. The main activities of the programme include technical support and capacity reinforcement to selected Sub-Saharan African countries to develop sustainable national energy information systems and energy modelling capability, to improve tracking against energy-related NDCs, SDGs, and other energy and climate policy goals, as well as long-term energy planning. Up to date, Senegal, Benin, and Ethiopia have officially adhered to the programme and a total of ten sub-Saharan African countries will benefit from it.
