ACSEA and the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance launch a 3-year renewable energy project in Africa.

April 21, 2022

The Africa Coalition for Sustainable Energy Access (ACSEA) and the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance launch a 3-year renewable energy project in Africa. It will be implemented in Nigeria, Kenya, Botswana, Cameroon, and Morocco. Since Africa has the lowest global energy access rates, energy access must be a policy priority for governments and development players. Renewable energy is the most effective way to fill the gap and reduce emissions.

The project will address energy governance issues to create decentralized energy systems and promote community energy in off-grid, mini-grid and standalone systems. It will encourage energy transition with decentralized energy systems and give local manufacturers capacity training to produce renewable energy gadgets. It aims to enhance influential actors to support national and regional policies on renewable energy dedicated to the community’s energy needs and help decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

The project will also allow the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Community-based Organizations (CBOs) to receive improved skills, knowledge, and tools. This will enable them to participate in renewable policy development and program implementation monitoring. It will also reinforce their impact at the local, continental, and global levels.
