ENERGy access and green transition collaboratively demonstrated in urban and rural areas in AfrICA

Description du projet

L’énergie durable au service des partenariats UE-Afrique

L’énergie est la clé du développement en Afrique, et soutenir l’accès du continent africain à l’énergie est une priorité commune de l’Afrique et de l’Europe. Dans ce contexte, le projet ENERGICA financé par l’UE réunira 11 partenaires basés en Afrique et 17 partenaires européens dans le but de favoriser la collaboration entre les deux continents en matière d’accès à l’énergie et de développement énergétique durable. Plus précisément, le projet développera des nanogrilles innovantes dans les zones rurales de Madagascar, des systèmes de biogaz performants de faible technicité dans les zones périurbaines de la Sierra Leone et des solutions d’électromobilité alimentées par l’énergie solaire dans les zones urbaines du Kenya. À terme, plus de 1 500 parties prenantes locales à travers l’Afrique devraient directement bénéficier de cette initiative.

Objectif

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.
