The Transforming Energy Access – Learning Partnership (TEA-LP) is a partnership of African, South Asian and Indo-Pacific universities and other stakeholders, committed to ensuring a highly qualified workforce to drive the transition to sustainable energy access for all. Our university partners aim to deliver innovative and relevant, Masters’ level courses and our CPD courses aim to support professionals  already working in the energy sector. In addition, TEA-LP is building a network of southern expertise.

About TEA-LP

TEA-LP is delivered through three complementary work packages that:

  1. Support universities in delivering new and improved curricula that prepare Masters’ graduates to achieve energy access targets in their respective countries and beyond;
  2. Support the growth of the sector through the design and implementation of new CPD courses;
  3. Significantly expand its networking function in response to the urgent need for improved Southern visibility and recognition in the energy access sector space.

Through the above, the TEA-LP is expanding its networking function for universities, their students and other relevant stakeholders to jointly address the energy access challenge.

TEA-LP is part of the Transforming Energy Access platform, a research and innovation platform supporting the technologies, business models and skills needed to enable an inclusive clean energy transition.
