Digitalization is key to increasing energy access, integrating renewable energy sources into the grid and improving the performance of power utilities, especially in developing countries. Public utilities, start-ups and technology providers can boost digitalization through the implementation of innovative technologies and new business models.
To support this, the Digital Energy Facility, a European Union financed programme implemented by AFD, is launching the Digital Energy Challenge with an annual Call for Projects. The focus for the 2021 Call for Projects is sub-Saharan Africa due to the high needs in this region.
