The SEforALL Africa Hub provides Technical Assistance to African Countries to support their efforts to achieve the SEforALL objectives of energy access, renewable energies and energy efficiency.
The support is delivered through the following instruments: 1) the African Climate Technology Center (ACTC), that supports mitigation actions in line with SEforALL and 2) the Green Mini Grid Market Development Program (GMG-MDP), that aims to foster the rural electrification off grid sector (managed and delivered through the AfDB) and 3) UNDP support for Rapid Assessment / Gap Analysis and Country Action Processes.
ACTC has supported the development of the SEforALL Country Action Agenda and Investment Prospectuses in: Angola, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda (AA only), Tanzania and Zimbabwe and is currently supporting the development of AA & IP in Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali (IP only), Niger (IP only) Rwanda (IP only) and Zambia.
ACTC also financed technical assistance for Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting and for energy efficiency in public buildings in Ghana, and the design of a Market Study to analyse the potential size of a market-based financing facility for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy projects in the 4 Sub-Saharan African countries.
GMG-MDP is a regional project which became operational in 2015 with a grant from SEFA and aims at fostering a marked-based approach to mini grid development, and that supports project developers with advisory services.
The UNDP supported the development of the majority of the Rapid Assessment / Gap Analysis in Africa and closely collaborated in the processes of Action Agendas and Investment Prospectus, and supported stakeholder and civil society consultations.
