Development and Energy in Africa

Information Sheet (PDF file)
Project website
Project Intranet

The principal aims of Development and Energy in Africa (DEA) project were:

  • to identify and examine the developmental impacts of energy innovations and actions linked to improving energy access and poverty alleviation, and
  • to use the information obtained to improve on-going and future energy interventions through the energy policy makers and institutions in the countries concerned.

The project was funded by the European Commission under its COOPENER programme, and co-financed by the Danish Government through URC, and the Netherlands Government through ECN.

Activities were implemented by a consortium of African partners in the target countries:
EECG Consultants Pty, Ltd (EECG),
KITE, Ghana
Mali-Folkecenter (MFC)
Centre for Energy, Environment and Engineering Zambia Ltd. (CEEEZ)

The European consortium partners were:
Risψ National Laboratory, Denmark
Energy Centre Netherlands (ECN)
