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.

We, Ministers in Charge of Energy in Africa, gathered at our 2ndordinary AU Conference of Energy Ministers of Africa (CEMA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on the 16th of November 2012, recognizing that, despite the availability of enormous resources of energy in Africa the bulk of the African population lack access to modern energy resources and concerted efforts are needed to ensure that the challenges facing the utilization of Africa massive energy resources are solved.

This template has been developed in close consultation with SE4ALL partners in order to promote more coherence in the SE4ALL country action process. It is intended to provide guidance to Governments and SE4ALL partners for the development of a SE4ALL Country Action Agenda. It is not intended to be prescriptive; its content is for reference only and can be applied flexibly according to specific country requirements.

As part of the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) Initiative implementation structure, three regional hubs (Africa, Asia and Latin/Central America) are envisaged to be set-up to facilitate and coordinate the implementation of the Initiative. It is envisaged that the Regional Development Banks would play the lead role on these hubs. As far as Africa is concerned the AU Conference of Energy Ministers of Africa (CEMA) decided in November 2012 that AUC, NPCA and AfDB should coordinate the implementation of SE4All in Africa.

Energy enables. Access to energy is an essential component of economic and social development. It facilitates individual development through improving services for households and communities, and conditions in education, health and water and sanitation. It is an enabling factor for the development of economic activities through mechanization, and modernization of technologies and communication services.

The Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Initiative was launched by the United Nations Secretary General in September 2011 to achieve three inter-related goals by 2030: (1) Ensuring universal access to modern energy services; (2) Doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency; and (3) Doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
Since the launch of SE4ALL, Africa took the lead in responding to the initiative with 44 African countries out of 84 globally opted in the initiative.

The September 2012 Africa workshop recognized the gap that exists in the timely accessing of required information on SE4ALL from global level down to country level and vice versa to advance country priority energy projects. Emphasis was placed on the need to develop an African mechanism to fill this gap.
The EGM comprised the AUC, NPCA, EAC (representative of RECs), Country Representatives (Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia, Zambia, Botswana, Lesotho, and Gambia), Development Partners (UNDP and UNIDO), Civil Society and Energy Experts.
