Supporting African Governments' Rural Energy Policies

The Clean Energy Solutions Center supported government stakeholders from multiple countries throughout Africa through virtual trainings to the members of the African Association for Rural Electrification (CLUB-ER). A total of four webinar trainings were held—two in French and two in English. Each webinar featured a Solutions Center expert who presented on one of the following topics:

  • Planning for energy access
  • Quality standards in rural electrification
  • Rural electrification policy and strategies
  • Forecasting electricity demand in rural Africa

The webinar trainings were also recorded and made available to members for reference.

Impact of Assistance

Solutions Center assistance to CLUB-ER will help build capacity among its members, many of whom work in government energy-related ministries. The capacity building will support them in successfully implementing rural energy and energy access policies.
