New Deal On Energy For Africa Dashboard
In 2016, the African Development Bank launched the New Deal on Energy for Africa (NDEA), a partnership-driven effort with the aspirational goal of achieving universal access to electricity in Africa by 2025. The New Deal unifies all of the Bank’s initiatives that gear towards achieving this goal. A key component of the NDEA is mobilizing private and public sector engagement of the African energy sector, in order to achieve universal over in the continent.
To track progress, the African Development Bank has developed a dynamic bottom-up methodology based on macro-economic and energy data. This methodology has been captured in the online New Deal on Energy for Africa Dashboard (NDEA Dashboard), that covers the entire African continent. The NDEA Dashboard is a unique tool, based on macro-economic and energy data, that allows estimating country-specific input (funding) and output (capacity and connections) requirements to achieve universal access to electricity, using a dynamic bottom-up model.
