Renewable Energy Empowerment in Sierra Leone: A Vision to Electrify Rural Sierra Leone


Project Reference: AAGL-0017a

The primary objective of the project is to execute an innovative, stakeholder engagement process that addresses country-specific needs and catalyses innovation in the renewable energy sector.

Through four innovation phases the project will:

  • Research and develop a knowledge base of existing renewable energy policy in Sierra Leone, including the availability, demand and feasibility of different RE technologies and financing options
  • Engage stakeholders through an outreach programme
  • Host an innovation workshop for key decision-makers and stakeholders
  • Disseminate the outcomes of the workshop

This project is supported under Round 2 of CDKN’s Innovation Fund. The Fund is designed as open and competitive to provide fast-moving support for innovative initiatives in the field of climate change and development. For Innovation Fund projects, lead applicants must include African institutions, preferably government institutions, and must present ‘game-changing’ ideas.

Budget: £78 250

Timeframe:  6 months, Jan – Jul 2013

Project Manager: Asanda Kitsi
