The Africa Clean Energy Technical Assistance Facility (ACE TAF) started in November 2018 with the aim to catalyse a market-based approach for private sector delivery of renewable energy electrification technologies, with a focus on high-quality stand-alone solar (SAS) systems. The programme was funded by the UK Government Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), and managed by Tetra Tech International Development. We worked in 14 African Countries and have been committed to improving access to energy for all, especially vulnerable communities.
ACE-TAF has provided governments with evidence and tools to make informed policies and regulation that positively impact the off-grid sector. Our neutral collaborative stakeholder engagement approach that places the most vulnerable end users at the forefront, that brings together governments, the private sector, and donors will help the continent to move closer to a more equitable energy transition for all.
This catalogue provides a series of snapshots of results of interventions implemented in response to key gaps found in the SAS sector which helped to improve the enabling environment for the private sector to thrive. It is organized around the themes on improving: Consumer Affordability, Energy Access for All, Building Consumer Confidence and Protection, Improved Energy Planning, Energy as an Enabler, and Building Stakeholder Trust by Working Together.
