Goal 1: Universal Access to Energy

Universal access to energy in East Africa

Our aim is to promote equitable access to modern energy services for cooking, lighting, communication and productive uses across the Eastern Africa region where women and men make informed choices to access appropriate and affordable energy technologies and services. We promote viable and efficient technologies with a focus on renewable household energies and decentralized energy systems.
In this line we promote:
➢ Pro-poor energy policies
➢ Effective energy delivery models
➢ Awareness on the part of beneficiaries
➢ Innovative financing mechanisms
➢ Mainstreaming gender in delivery of energy services.
