What is DEA?

DEA was a 30-month project (May 2005 - Oct. 2007) funded by the European Commission under its COOPENER programme, and co-financed by the Danish Government through the UNEP Ris?Centre and the Netherlands Government through ECN,  involving European partners Ris?DTU and Energy Centre Netherlands (ECN), and six African Centres:

The principal aims of the DEA project were:

(i) to identify and examine the developmental impacts of energy innovations and actions linked to improving energy access and poverty alleviation, and

(ii) to use the information obtained to improve on-going and future energy interventions through the energy policy makers and institutions in the countries concerned.

Better understanding of the energy-development linkages in existing energy interventions, and its embodiment in an operational tool, can facilitate the design of energy projects that impact better on the development process.

NB: The DEA project was formally completed on 31 October 2007, but this site and the collaboration between the project partners will remain active to follow up, disseminate and further the ideas of the project.

COOPENER is part of the Intelligent Energy - Europe programme, implemented by the , Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) an agency under the European Commission's Directorate General for Energy and Transport (DG TREN)COOPENER projects focus on capacity building and training in developing countries. Links are drawn to the EU Energy Initiative for poverty alleviation and sustainable development in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific.
