The objective of WAEP is to expand supply of and access to affordable and reliable grid-connected electricity services in West Africa through a range of technical assistance, capacity building, and transactional support to advance Power Africa’s objective in the West Africa region. WAEP will implement targeted interventions to achieve the following four Outcomes:

Our approach will prioritize but will not be limited to Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana, which were identified in Power Africa’s Gas Roadmap to 2030 as high potential gas-to-power locations and exporters.
