Projektbeschreibung

Nachhaltige Energie als Motor für Partnerschaften zwischen der EU und Afrika

Energie ist der Schlüssel zur Entwicklung Afrikas. Ein gemeinsames vorrangiges Ziel für Afrika und Europa lautet daher, den Zugang zu Energie zu fördern. Vor diesem Hintergrund wird das EU-finanzierte Projekt ENERGICA elf in Afrika angesiedelte und 17 europäische Partner an einen Tisch bringen, um die Zusammenarbeit zwischen den beiden Kontinenten im Bereich des Zugangs zu Energie und der Entwicklung nachhaltiger Energiesysteme zu unterstützen. Das Projekt wird innovative Lösungen entwickeln. Beispiele dafür sind Inselnetze im ländlichen Madagaskar, technisch einfache, aber effiziente Biogassysteme im stadtnahen Sierra Leone und solarbetriebene E-Mobilitätslösungen im städtischen Kenia. Im Endeffekt sollen mehr als 1 500 lokale Interessengruppen in ganz Afrika direkt von dieser Initiative profitieren.

Ziel

Gathering 11 African-based partners and 17 Europeans with offices or subsidiaries in Africa, the ENERGICA project is ambitiously fostering the collaboration between partners of both continents on energy access and sustainable energy development. Developing innovative and tailored solutions on productive use systems through innovative nano-grids in rural Madagascar in WP4; low-tech efficient biogas system, coupled with water purification demonstrated in peri-urban Sierra Leone in WP5; and solar powered e-mobility solution for boda-boda in urban Kenya in WP6, ENERGICA addresses a wide range of issues and provides solutions. From energy production, local renewable value chain development and e-mobility also providing flexibility services to the grid, ENERGICA is applicable to many different technical and socio-economic contexts. Built upon local stakeholders and through a co-creation methodology that will take additional local stakeholders’ inputs into account (WP2), ENERGICA aims to reach a powerful market uptake and wide replication (WP9) during and after the end of the project, with strong environmental and socio-economic local benefits (WP8). The innovative business models developed in WP7 will support this movement for local market uptake while some of the solutions will even rely upon local production and manufacturing, and local business and workforce participating to capacity building activities (WP3). Developing solutions that are based on renewable energy (mainly solar and biogas), and studying projected climate change impact evolution in Africa, ENERGICA will strengthen the joint EU-AU climate change and sustainable energy partnership effort and contribute to fighting climate change as well as improving health and social conditions in the demonstration sites and beyond. ENERGICA will demonstrate its solutions and gather data for 24 out of the 48 months that it will last and will directly impact positively more than 1500 local stakeholders across Africa.
