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 TEA-LP provides both financial and technical support to partner universities. The current phase of the TEA-LP runs from 2019 until the end of 2023.

In addition to developing new curricula, the TEA-LP is also working to support prospective students with scholarships. We’re pleased to announce the first collaboration in this regard with the Lichtenstein Institute for Sustainable Development for students studying at Mekelle University. The TEA-LP has also awarded scholarships to students at the National University of Lesotho.
