Energy Challenges

Energy is crucial to the quality of our lives. It is a key ingredient in all sectors of modern economies and for achieving almost all of the Sustainable Development Goals, from its role in the eradication of poverty through advancements in health, education, water supply and industrialization, to combating climate change.

FEEM research focuses on energy transition in Africa.
