Irena and Power Africa work together to accelerate renewable energy in Sub-Saharan Africa

IRENA and the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Power Africa Initiative will collaborate on projects through IRENA’s Sustainable Energy Marketplace and Africa Clean Energy Corridor, with a goal of advancing Sustainable Development Goal 7, which aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030.

Specifically, the new partnership focuses on expanding information-sharing to further renewable energy growth in sub-Saharan Africa through sharing publicly available information on specific project opportunities and IRENA platforms such as the Sustainable Energy Marketplace and Power Africa’s Transaction Tracker database.
