    Second High Level Meeting of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership

    The Second High-Level Meeting (HLM) of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) took place from 11-13 February 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on the theme “Taking the Next Step: Africa and the EU are tackling energy challenges together.” The meeting was jointly hosted by the Ethiopian Government, the Governments of Austria, Germany and Mauritius, the African Union Commission (AUC) and the European Commission.

  • Country Study

    Cambodia - Development of a National Energy Efficiency Policy

    As Cambodia's rapidly increasing demand for energy cannot only be satisfied by additional power generation, the high potential for energy efficiency  needs to be harnessed too. The EUEI PDF has supported the Cambodian Ministry of Industry, Mines, and Energy with the development of a National Energy Efficiency Policy and Strategy as well as a targeted Action Plan.

  • RECP Regional Study

    SADC/RERA - Regulation for mini-grids

    The SADC region faces major challenges in achieving improved access to modern energy services, and an extension of the existing grid might not suffice to increase the household electrification rate in the region.
    EUEI PDF has worked with the Regional Electricity Regulators Association of Southern Africa (RERA) and developed supportive framework conditions for mini-grids employing renewable and hybrid generation in Southern Africa.

  • Country Study

    Sierra Leone - Household Cooking Energy Plan

    Fuelwood and charcoal account for almost all of Sierra Leone’s rural and urban household energy for cooking and heating. It comprises around 85% of all energy used in the country, including the commercial and service sectors as well as household enterprise activities.To this regard, the EUEI PDF, under the Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP), supported the Sierra Leone Ministry of Energy in the development of a household cooking energy plan.

  • Dialogue Event

    Benin: Workshop on Green Mini-Grids

    The EUEI PDF organised a workshop aiming at raising awareness for mini-grid applications in West Africa on 21 March 2014 in Cotonou, hosted by the Beninese Agency for Rural Electricity and Energy Control (ABERME).

    The workshop attracted more than 80 participants from 20 different countries. Both policy issues as well as project development aspects of mini-grids were addressed by international expert speakers and during panel discussions.

EU Energy Initiative Partnership Dialogue Facility

EU Energy Initiative Partnership Dialogue Facility

The EUEI PDF is a flexible instrument of the EU Energy Initiative (EUEI) supporting the creation of an enabling environment for investments in sustainable energy markets across Africa, Southeast Asia, Latin America and the Pacific through:

  • Policy, regulation and strategy development;
  • institutional building and strengthening;
  • capacity development; and
  • knowledge sharing.

Furthermore, the EUEI PDF supports the strategic energy dialogue of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) as a secretariat and the implementation of the Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP).

Activity Lines

EUEI PDF provides support in developing successful energy policies and strategies by conducting country and regional studies with national governments and regional organisations active in the energy sector; thematic studies on energy issues; and dialogue and networking activities to foster the exchange of knowledge.

EUEI PDF acts as the secretariat of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP), a long-term framework for strategic dialogue and joint action. We also implement the Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP), to help make Africa a prime destination for renewable energy investments.
