SESA: Smart Energy Solution for Africa to accelerate the green transition and energy access.
We are happy to announce that the project SESA (Smart Energy Solutions for Africa), funded by the EU H2020 program, has officially started! SESA is a collaborative project between the EU and Africa that aims at providing energy access technologies and business models that are easily replicable and generate local opportunities for economic development and social cohesion in Africa. We are very proud to be part of a consortium of 30 partners from all over Europe and Africa.
Through several local living labs, it is expected to facilitate the co-development of scalable and replicable energy access innovations, to be tested, validated, and later replicated throughout the African continent. Running from October 2021 until September 2025, SESA is the result of a strong partnership between leading European and African universities, research centres, industry actors, local governments, knowledge and implementation organizations and networks. These will be strengthened via peer-to-peer exchange, policy dialogues, regional and international events among the others.
Cenex Nederland leads the work package responsible for the development of the key repository of the project, the so called “SESA Toolbox”, and the evaluation of the project results available in the toolbox. For more information please see the SESA page
