Africa Renewable Energy Initiative
Together with other industrialised countries, Germany supports the Africa Renewable Energy Initiative (External link) (AREI).
Since 2015, Germany has been one of the largest bilateral donors for renewable energy in Africa, with total funding of about 2.7 billion euros. This funding was invested in the expansion of climate-neutral energy systems, the transmission and distribution of sustainably produced electricity, and technical cooperation in this area.
