Africa-EU Energy Partnership Status Report Update: 2016

Led by Jon Marks, analysts from Cross-border Information (CbI) and its African Energy consultancy team prepared the 'Status Report Update: 2016' for the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) Secretariat, operated by the EU Energy Initiative Partnership Dialogue Facility (EUEI PDF) in Germany. The report was presented at the AEEP's Second Stakeholder Forum in Milan over 16-17 May 2016 – AEEP reports mixed progress on targets.

Our work with the AEEP, which started 2012, has included preparation of an AEEP Power Project Database and monitoring tool to measure progress towards agreed Africa-EU targets for energy access, energy security and renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Subsequent phases of work have included the ongoing monitoring and presentation of progress towards these targets in two separate Status Report Updates, the first of which was prepared for and presented at the AEEP’s Second High-Level Meeting Addis Ababa in February 2014.

CbI was chosen for this work on the basis that African Energy has one of the most credible databases on Africa’s power sector.
