To date, the JEG members with strong guidance from the IT Co-Chairs and support from the EUEI PDF have prepared and approved the following:
The 2nd Action Plan details the implementation of the AEEP. The Expected Results of the 2nd Action Plan will contribute to the achievement of the AEEP targets for 2020. At the end of the 2011-2013 period these outcomes will allow the monitoring of progress towards the realisation of the political targets.
The ‘Road Map’ is the action plan for the AEEP that mirrors the Joint Africa EU-Strategy. It was adopted by the JEG in September 2009 and was approved at the High Level Meeting in September 2010. The Road Map is a ‘living document’ to be reviewed regularly and revised as part of the dialogue in the AEEP process.
Participants of the High Level Meeting (HLM) held in Vienna from 14-15 September 2010, endorsed the HLM Declaration containing Political Targets to be achieved by 2020 on energy access, energy security, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
They RECP which aims at enhancing industrial and business cooperation in the energy sector between the two continents was launched at the First High Level Meeting of the AEEP held on 14-15 September 2010.
The final version of RECP Strategy 2020 was endorsed by the co-chairs of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP) during the 7th Joint Expert Group Meeting in Bonn, Germany, after the stakeholders had discussed some changes and amendments.
The Partnership has created an AEEP Monitoring Tool. The ‘AEEP Monitoring Progress Report’ of 2012 outlines the work accomplished in establishing the baseline for Partnership actions, against which we will measure performance in achieving the AEEP 2020 Political Targets on a regular basis. The AEEP Monitoring Tool aims to produce up-to-date, accurate metrics. Furthermore, work on the AEEP Monitoring tool will include efforts to build data collection capacity in African institutions.
A consultation process via an Online Platform was applied to prepare for the First Stakeholder Forum of the AEEP which took place in Cape Town, South Africa, in May 2012 with more than 250 participants from private and public sector, civil society and academia. The goal of the conference was to identify the role each stakeholder group plays in achieving the AEEP 2020 Political Targets and their contribution to the partnership and to guarantee a long-term involvement of the stakeholders.
