In order to accelerate the use of renewable energy in Africa and meet future energy needs, the Africa-EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP) was established under the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP).
In order to support market development for renewable energy in sub-Sahara Africa, the RECP works in four Action Areas:

  1. Policy advisory: solve specific policy and regulatory barriers for investment in renewables.
  2. Private sector cooperation: promote renewable energy, provide market information, link up potential partners for cooperation (especially between Africa and Europe).
  3. Access to finance: provide advisory to project developers in accessing finance.
  4. Innovation and skills development: improve training and education systems.

Factor worked in the identification of a work programme for these two countries based on the findings of the scoping missions jointly organised by RECP and Factor.
