About AEP

Objectives

Mission

The Africa Energy Portal (AEP) is a one-stop-shop for energy sector news, insights, data and more. Launched in November 2018, the AEP focuses exclusively on Africa, serving as a repository for accurate and relevant information and data across the energy value chain. The AEP also provides a platform for knowledge-sharing on the African energy sector and seeks to create an enabling environment for vibrant community discussion on the most pressing issues impacting the African energy sector today.

The core objective of the AEP is to provide a virtual access point by which stakeholders in the African energy sector from all backgrounds can obtain the information they need to better engage the sector. Open access to accurate information is critical to de-risking the African energy sector and opening it up to more efficient and sustainable pathways of development.

 

New Deal on Energy for Africa

New Deal on Energy for Africa

In 2016, the African Development Bank launched the New Deal on Energy for Africa (NDEA), a partnership-driven effort with the aspirational goal of achieving universal access to electricity in Africa by 2025. The New Deal unifies all of the Bank’s initiatives that gear towards achieving this goal.

A key component of the New Deal is mobilizing private and public sector engagement of the African energy sector. A significant obstacle to the development of the African energy sector has been the lack of publicly accessible information on relevant data, news, and insights. While the last decade has seen innovations in information and data gathering techniques and more spotlight on developments in the African energy space, relevant information is dispersed and often not up-to-date. The Africa Energy Portal provides a one-stop source for information on all developments in the African energy sector, as well as a platform for experts, researchers, investors, policymakers, and other stakeholders to share their knowledge, ideas and insights with one another.
