Sustainable energy for all

IMPULSO supports SE4ALL Program in Angola and Democratic Republic of Congo

IMPULSO, in collaboration with the Dutch International Cooperation Organization SNV and with funding from the African Development Bank, will provide technical assistance in Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo for the implementation of the Sustainable Energy for all (SE4All) initiative launched in 2011 by the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon.

More than 80 countries have adhered to this initiative, of which 43 are African, with three objectives for the 2030 horizon:

1) To promote universal access to energy.

2) To double the overall rate of improvement of energy efficiency.

3) To double the contribution of renewable energies to the global energy mix.

The technical assistance will help these countries participate actively in the twenty-first Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 2015 (COP21 / CMP11), also called “Paris 2015”, from November 30 to December 11, an event of great importance since it should lead to a new international agreement on climate applicable to all countries with the aim of keeping global warming under 2ºC.
