Energy and Development

Solar panel in an African countryside house

Limited access to energy and dependency on fossil fuels are major barriers to the economic development and the improvement of living conditions in emerging and developing countries. Small and medium-sized enterprises in particular, who are essential to the economic growth of these countries, often suffer from high energy and electricity prices as these heavily affect their competitiveness. In spite of their great potential, energy efficiency measures and renewable energies are not being sufficiently utilised by these enterprises. adelphi supports stakeholders from politics, the finance and industrial sector in building capacities to design the necessary framework for the energy transition. We support sustainable development in the field of energy, particularly through the design and implementation of adequate consulting instruments and trainings.
