EELA Project

LIFE Academy is engaged in the EELA Project by supporting the Swedish Energy Agency in the set up and development of a capacity development framework for training within the SADC and EAC regions. The training consists of both onsite and online sessions with focus on the key areas within the EELA Project such as lighting, clean cooling, productive use and market development. The EELA Project is coordinated by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) and financed by the Swedish international development agency (Sida).

Mandate and Scope of Work

The EELA Project aims to ignite a market transformation for energy-efficient lighting and appliances across the EAC and SADC regions. This ambitious undertaking seeks to create the perfect conditions, both in terms of market dynamics and institutions, to drive the widespread adoption of efficient lighting products and appliances across all sectors. By facilitating regional regulatory and trade harmonization interventions, the project empowers private sector-led activities, leading to the widespread use of energy-efficient, high-quality lighting and appliances. It is noteworthy that inclusivity is a core principle, ensuring socially sustainable outcomes for all project activities.

The ultimate goal of the EELA Project is to enhance access to modern energy services in various sectors while promoting active private sector involvement, thereby spearheading sustainable development in the region.
