Angola is part of The Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), that recently adopted the White Paper of CEEAC and CEMAC on a Regional policy for universal access to modern energy services and economic and social development (2014-2030), adopting specific targets regarding energy access, energy efficiency and renewable energies – in line with the Sustainable Energy for All initiative. Additionally, the Republic of Angola has decided to officially opt-in the Sustainable Energy for All initiative and the goals of universal energy access, efficient use of resources and utilization of Angola’s endogenous potential are also goals of the 2025 Angola Long Term Strategy, that foresee achieving 60% access by 2025.
The country prepared a Rapid Assessment / Gap analysis through a comprehensive desk review and stakeholder consultation covering government ministries and departments, utilities, private sector and development partners in Angola.
