The NEPAD Agency is making strong progress towards securing sustainable energy access in Kenya and the Gambia, as part of the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Initiative.

A National Agenda of Action and Investment Prospectus are being developed in both countries to identify energy priority projects that will help to achieve the SE4All targets. These are doubling the share of renewable energy; doubling the rate of energy efficiency; and achieving universal access to energy for all by 2030.

The NEPAD Agency is taking the lead in facilitating the implementation of SE4ALL in Africa. Supported by BizClim and the United Nations Development Programme, NEPAD has reached an advanced stage of developing the two documents for the two countries.

Last month representatives of the Gambian Ministry of Energy and of the Gambian public and private sectors have undergone training for the development of the two documents, identifying high priority energy projects under Energy Access, Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency.
