About the Africa Minigrids Program (AMP)

The Africa Minigrids Program (AMP) is a Global Environment Facility funded initiative, jointly implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the African Development Bank (AfDB), and RMI. The AMP initiative — spanning 21 African countries — helps develop the enabling environments to increase the commercial viability of renewable energy minigrids and scale up investments in decentralized renewable energy solutions in Africa.

The Energy Transition Academy is implementing the community of practice component.

Community of Practice

The Energy Transition Academy will contribute to the Africa Minigrids Program (AMP) by developing a Community of Practice (CoP) that will support knowledge sharing and facilitate the development of solutions to common challenges within the Africa minigrid sector.

The CoP will be a dedicated, private network for energy practitioners to connect and collaborate to implement their minigrid projects.

The AMP CoP participants can connect to learning activities, link to curated knowledge products, and connect with one another, helping to strengthen South-South cooperation and learning.
