In the lead up to the AU-EU Summit, the Africa EU Energy Partnership is happy to reflect on 10 years of successful cooperation and significant achievements in what has proven to be a critically important and dynamic sector. This edition of the newsletter therefore serves as a celebratory news piece to all the partners and stakeholders of the Africa EU Energy Partnership across the two continents and beyond. In particular, the Secretariat wishes to salute the untiring commitment put in by its Steering Group members to sustain the momentum of this mutual cooperation. Private sector, civil society and academia as key AEEP focal points have also continued to play a central role within the thematic Workstreams. This has undoubtedly ensured actions are translated into impacts “on the ground”, breathing life into the Partnership.
