A functional and efficient power industry is recognized as a key pillar for economic development and a transformative engine to meet basic social and economic needs. Over the past two decades, many emerging nations across the African continent have been in the process of reforming their electricity sectors to boost electrification and access to affordable, secured, and sustainable electricity.
LEI’s work in Africa has been focused on providing technical assistance across all aspects of the energy sector to build coherent, transparent, strong, and resilient power systems that can stimulate economic and social development.

Our work with governments is centered around the empowerment of public agencies and public companies with the tools, the training workshops, and the resources to carry out their mandates.
