ALER General Assembly approves Action Plan and Budget for 2022

The ALER General Assembly took place on December 17th, exclusively online, where the 2022 Action Plan and Budget was unanimously approved.


According to the approved document, 2022 will be ALER's busiest year and with the best results. Various activities will be organized, including Events, Publications and Training.


February marks the return of ALER events with a webinar on the new regulation of off-grid energy access in Mozambique and another webinar presenting case studies of decentralized renewable generation projects in São Tomé and Príncipe, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau. In April the National Action Plans for Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency of São Tomé and Príncipe will be presented in another webinar.

During the year, international conferences will also be held in Angola, São Tomé and Príncipe and Mozambique, in addition to other smaller events.

ALER will also continue to organize its ALER Talks, on dates and topics yet to be defined, for which we welcome any suggestions.


Next year, case studies of projects in São Tomé and Príncipe, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau will be published and the Angola National Report will be launched. In addition to these new publications, existing publications will be updated, namely the Briefing Renewables in Mozambique as well as the Market Sheets of all PALOP, exclusive to Members.

To consult these publications, pay attention to LERenováveis, ALER's online database, with free access publications on renewable energies in Portuguese-speaking countries.


Trainings will also be a strong bet of ALER for the year to come.

Between February and June, training will take place within the scope of one of the most recent projects launched by ALER, the Sustainable Energy Program for Women (PESM), which will include an Entrepreneurship and Start UPs Workshop (WESUP) during the month of April.

ALER will continue to support National Associations, which often includes training sessions. In this context, ALER will be delighted to welcome the São Toméan Associations APERAS and AENER into its office at the beginning of the year.
