The TEA-LP is a partnership of African universities committed to delivering professional African graduates ready to drive the continent’s transition to sustainable energy access for all.

Our Partner Universities are committed to developing, implementing and evolving new first-of-its-kind postgraduate curricula in Africa, offering students the opportunity to develop skills and expertise sorely needed to advance Africa’s sustainable energy transition.

The TEA-LP Team supports our partners through workshops, webinars dedicated guidance on curriculum development, course planning, marketing and accreditation.

We also have a Scholarship programme, in partnership with and generously supported by the Liechtenstein Institute for Sustainable Development, to enable students to access and enrol in the new programmes.

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