Power Up: boosting Africa’s energy access pioneers

08 Dec 2023
Climate Action Stage

With smart funding and investment, energy access pioneers can bring clean power to millions of people across Africa.

Join this Power Up campaign event to hear about frontline organisations delivering new jobs, better health, food security and more benefits to marginalised communities. And we’ll ask how targeted finance and innovative policies can scale up their inclusive work tackling energy poverty.

An expert panel will:

  • Share insights and perspectives from grassroots energy access organisations. 
  • Ask how funders and investors can channel resources to these pioneers. 
  • Explore how national and regional policymaking can support funding and investment for frontline organisations.
  • Highlight the role multilateral development banks can play.
