About Energising Development
Energising Development (EnDev) is an energy access partnership currently financed by six donor countries: the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Sweden. EnDev promotes sustainable access to modern energy services that meet the needs of the poor - long lasting, affordable, and appreciated by users. As of 2017, EnDev works in 25 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Since 2005, EnDev has taken a leading role at promoting access to Sustainable Energy for All. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) cooperates closely with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) on the global programme level. Read more.
