Using local knowledge and expertise to develop the market
In the pilot programme in Zambia, this platform has been formalised as the Off-Grid Energy Task Force. It is embedded in and led by the Ministry of Energy, with secretariat services provided by the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP). The Task Force gathers stakeholders from the government, donor agencies, finance and the private sector to coordinate activities, share challenges and opportunities, and agree on priorities for action to strengthen the enabling environment for the market. The Task Force can also provide capacity building and technical assistance on demand.
