Transforming Energy Access: Innovations towards SDG 7

On 7 March 2019 the Efficiency for Access Coalition will take part in a one-day event convened on behalf of the UK Department for International Development. The event is dedicated to accelerating the transition between clean energy innovations and impact at scale, especially in Africa.

On the 7th March 2019 a one-day event will be convened on behalf of the UK Department for International Development in central London dedicated to accelerating the transition between clean energy innovations and impact at scale especially in Africa, through improved alignment of supportive policy and investment.

The event will bring together a range of policymakers, investors, programme managers, energy innovators and entrepreneurs, and wider stakeholders who share a strategic interest in innovations which can accelerate the achievement of SDG 7.

By convening a range of latest UK aid supported innovations contributing towards the achievement of the SDG 7 goals, the event will also aim to improve co-ordination between innovators, co-funding partners and programmes, and facilitate knowledge exchange between them on technology, business model, and financial innovations in clean energy access.

The one-day agenda will include an innovation marketplace, high level plenary sessions, and a series of breakout sessions and roundtables on focussed topics including the Future of Cooking, Energy Storage, Digital Energy, Financing the Transformation, Unlocking Mini-Grids and more.

The Carbon Trust, CLASP and the Energy Saving Trust are supporting the delivery of this event as part of our work under the Transforming Energy Access (TEA) and Low Energy Inclusive Appliances (LEIA) programmes.
