We work across Malawi, Ethiopia and Mozambique, bringing together a wide and diverse network policy, community, industry and academic partners in each country.
In terms of energy access, Ethiopia has made significant progress over the past years. Ethiopia has achieved connecting 33 % of its population with on-grid and 11 % with off-grid solutions - mostly mini-grids and solar PV systems - totaling 44%.
Malawi is one of the least electrified countries in the world. Only 18% of Malawi’s 18.14 million inhabitants have access to electricity (11.4% provided by the grid network; 6.6% provided through off-grid energy solutions).
In recent years, Mozambique has undertaken significant efforts to address energy access gaps, with electrification rates increasing from 5% in 2001 to 26% in 2016. The country’s National Electrification Strategy sets out to achieve universal access to electricity by 2030.
