We’re growing the next generation of African professionals to scale the energy access sector.

ABOUT THE TEA-LP

The TEA-LP is supporting 8 universities across Africa to develop new postgraduate curricula for the energy access sector. Curricula vary, in discipline and content, across universities, aiming to respond to the market needs of this rapidly growing sector in their respective countries.

The current phase of the TEA-LP runs from 2019 until the end of 2021. During this time  partner universities are provided with both financial and technical support to develop their new courses and degree programmes.

In addition to developing new curricula, the TEA-LP also aims to support and develop African academia, building partnerships among universities to grow teaching and research in this exciting arena.
