Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Production of energy has the ability to reduce global warming directly affecting African countries by monitoring greenhouse gas emissions. According to estimates from the International Energy Agency (IEA), predicts that the center of gravity of energy demand will switch decisively to emerging economies.
African Economic Development
The promotion of energy productivity and security will open African emerging and developing countries to diverse energy resources available in sustainable quantities and affordable prices, leading businesses to achieve higher economic output per unit of energy used.
Local communities have the opportunity to substantially benefit from energy production. Local manufacturing and significant job creation will result as an outcome and will continue to grow as the allocation expands and energy production development escalates.
Substantial Financial Investments
Real financial savings accrue to households and businesses when energy productivity is improved. The IEA projects that consumers could save as much as $17.5 trillion in energy expenditures with available energy efficiency improvements between 2012 and 2035.
Who We Are
African Alliance for Energy Productivity is the leading energy productivity coalition in Africa. African Alliance is a partner of the Global Alliance, who operates on the international stage and has affiliations in all continents, sharing the same goal.
The goal of the Alliance is to maximize the economic outcomes of energy use, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, drive innovation and improve energy system reliability by securing new commitments to take action from corporate decision makers and policy leaders.
Africa will see a quadrupling of industrial output, significant increases per capita income whilst only doubling the current energy consumption across all sectors.
