This is an initiative of the Energy for All 2030 project.

Energy for All 2030 is a cross-European project, dedicated to raising the public and political profile of energy access. With a particular focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, as the region most acutely affected, we call for increased political will to deliver energy for all and the quantity and quality of EU funding to make this a reality.

Overview

Almost half the world’s population currently live without modern energy. Projections show that the situation is likely to be the same in two decades time. As a result, billions of women, men and children will be denied the power to challenge their poverty.

Specifically focusing on how access to energy can support the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals in Sub-Saharan Africa, the project ultimately aims to see a step change in EC funding for African energy initiatives that reach the poorest communities.

Project Duration

April 2010 to March 2013

Expected Results
  • Political commitment to actively support the prioritisation of energy access at local level in sub Saharan Africa
  • Public awareness of the urgent need for greater support of energy access for development
  • Policy dialogue between African and European partners to promote a coordinated approach to enhancing energy access
