On 13 March 2018, the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) discerned the ARE Award 2018 in the category 'best international & multilateral organisation' to the EUEI PDF for its efforts in the field of decentralised energy access. The EUEI PDF was one out of seven organisations honoured during ARE’s 4th Energy Access Investment Forum in Catania, Italy. The prize also acknowledges the EUEI PDF’s efforts to coordinate amongst the diverse actors with different backgrounds in the off-grid sector, which ARE identifies as one of the major challenges.

By discerning the awards, ARE highlights the energy access results achieved by stakeholders in the sector and stimulates the exchange of knowledge. Candidates were selected based on their effectiveness to contribute to new energy access, engagement with project beneficiaries and participation of local population, positive socio-economic impact, impact on CO2 reduction, and innovation potential for replication and upscaling.

The EUEI PDF has worked extensively with ARE through the Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP) and the Secretariat of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP). Examples reach from successful sector publications such as the Mini-grid Policy Toolkit to cooperation on RECP matchmaking events and promoting the voice of the youth.

The award honours the accomplishments of the EUEI PDF at the end of a 14-year journey. The new programme GET.pro, focusing on a global energy transformation, will take up work in the course of 2018 to deliver on international energy and climate targets.
