WE ARE A TEAM OF RENEWABLE ENERGY ACTORS, PAN-AFRICAN AND PAN-EUROPEAN ORGANISATIONS, SMES AND RESEARCH INSTITUTES.
The relevance of energy is well consolidated in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which intends to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Goal 7 is fully dedicated to energy.
The Sustainable Energy for All initiative, together with the World Bank and the International Energy Agency (IEA), are also redesigning the framework of access to better highlight the link between energy, services and local development.
Within fourteen months, PRE-LEAP-RE will prepare a European Joint Programme (EJP). It will set the foundation for future collaborative African Union-European Union activities in the field of renewable energy (RE). This project forms the basis for long-term African-European collaboration in RE and will contribute to a better understanding of the AU-EU ecosystem.

What is the European Joint Programme (EJP)?
EJP is an H2020 instrument designed to support coordinated national research and innovation programmes. It is designed to pool rather large national programmes, resources and capacities. The aims are not only to bring together resources in terms of funding, but also in terms of capacity building, networking, demonstration and dissemination activities. The EJP under preparation by the PRE-LEAP-RE project shall be launched under the Framework Programme Horizon 2020.
