Nigeria’s Decentralized Renewable Energy (DRE) Task Force which was set up under the Scaling Off Grid Energy (SOGE) project of the USAID and Power Africa and implemented by Power for All met on September 18th to discuss actionable steps that will accelerate the sector.
Power for All wrapped up its DRE101 trainings under the Scaling Off-Grid Energy (SOGE) project with two trainings in the Nigerian cities of Kano and Ibadan. The workshops were targeted at policymakers from the North-West and South-West states respectively.
During two regional DRE 101 workshop in Kogi and Enugu with high-level state and regional policymakers, the Power for All team received a deluge of requests from other states for similar training. Power for All has been conducting the trainings as part of the Scaling Off-Grid Energy (SOGE) project, but was only funded to do a series of six regions.
Power for All had a significant presence at the SEforALL Forum. CEO Kristina Skierka joined a high-level panel on “Electricity for All in Sub-Saharan Africa”, and research director Rebekah Shirley guided an interactive working session called the “Energy Access Dividend- Data that Informs and Influences”, looking at how to further research on socio-economic impacts of electricity access, with participation from Acumen, Duke University, RVE.SOL, wPower Hub and the World Health Organization.
Power for All worked closely with our partner, the Africa Mini-grid Developers Association (AMDA), to help launch the world’s first trade group focused exclusively on the full-range of mini-grid solutions.
