Our goal is to help scale the off-grid solar sector and to support the industry in growing quickly but sustainably. In order to maximize our impact, we regularly work with other organizations to overcome barriers of growth to the sector.
GOGLA is a Clean Energy Partner of the Transforming Energy Access for Households and Improved Livelihoods Programme (TEA), funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).
GOGLA is leading the project ‘PowerUp! Strengthening National Renewable Energy Associations’, which focuses on activating and strengthening National Renewable Energy Associations (NREAs) to promote off-grid solar markets. The project, which runs from 2018-2021, consists of three complementary components:
The first component aims to increase the capability of NREAs to deliver valuable services to their members and fully represent their members – in particular to governments. The goal of component two is to strengthen ties between associations and to address regional policy challenges affecting off-grid energy, while component three supports two NREAs through targeted capacity building on identified priority gaps.
Participating National Renewable Energy Associations
The Africa Clean Energy Technical Assistance Facility (ACE TAF) is a 4-year programme funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). It aims to catalyse a market based approach for private sector delivery of renewable energy electrification technologies, with a focus on high quality stand-alone solar systems. Working in 14 countries in Africa, the programme aims to complement government, private sector and donor initiatives and thus increase access to reliable energy leading to better well-being and livelihood opportunities for poor and vulnerable people.
Through the programme, GOGLA is involved in various initiatives including studies on demand side subsidies and distribution challenges in landlocked countries. In addition, support is being provided on implementation of quality standards in Kenya. Take a look at some of these initiatives and more at the ACE TAF SAS Knowledge Hub.
ACE TAF is being implemented by a consortium led by Tetratech International Development and which also includes GOGLA, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), World Resources Institute (WRI), Solar Sister, Open Capital Advisors (OCA) and the International Finance Cooperation (IFC) Lighting Global program.
