The Africa Coalition for Sustainable Energy & Access (ACSEA) is an alliance of various organizations drawn from the Civil Society (CSOs), Business/Private sector, academia and research institutions promoting renewable energy, energy transformation and access in the continent of Africa. Hosted by the Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA), the coalition was established in April 2016 at the sidelines of the African Ministerial Conference on Environment (AMEN) during the stakeholders’ consultative meeting. A steering committee comprised of 14 representatives drawn from women organizations working on energy, international organizations, youth, academia and private sector runs the network. The Network also works with the Pan-African Parliamentarian Network on Climate

To increase sustainable energy access to the poor especially those in the rural areas by advocating and demonstrating inclusive policies and investments
