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;
  • private sector cooperation;
  • 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 and Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP) projects involve activities in the fields of energy policy and strategy development; capacity building and private sector cooperation at a national and regional level. EUEI PDF thematic studies and dialogue events foster knowledge sharing and information exchange in the energy sector.

EUEI PDF acts as the secretariat of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP), a long-term framework for strategic dialogue and joint action. EUEI PDF provides the AEEP with services such as organizing regular meetings, drafting Partnership documents, and monitoring of the AEEP 2020 Political targets.
