RES4Africa, the Foundation promoting the development of renewable energy in African countries, benefits from three new members joining its ranks: Spanish utility EDP Renováveis, German wind power tech frim Nordex Group, and the Danish maker of wind turbines Vestas.
They were established in June 2019 in Rome, the renewAfrica initiative sees Enel Green Power and RES4Africa Foundation among its promoting members. In a mere eight months, the initiative gradually gained more traction and now counts on the support of 25 partners, representing the industry sector, as well as finance, research, university and consultancy sectors.
Many partners of the renewAfrica initiative weren’t originally part of the RES4Africa network; EDPR, Nordex and Vestas successfully interacting while participating in this endeavor is testament to the initiative’s positive impact.
In a continent like Africa, whereas to this day 600 million people still have no access to electricity, renewable sources are the most effective solution to favor the energy transition and hasten the ongoing electrification process.

Africa has a tremendous opportunity to develop its vast renewable energy resources so as to contribute to the continent’s resilient, prosperous and sustainable development. To accelerate the energy transition and expand energy access in the continent calls for stronger, sustained and concerted efforts between public and private actors to attract private investments and technological transfers at a much higher scale than has so far been achieved.
