Recognizing the need for Africa to be sufficiently represented and adequately prepared for the energy transition, ICE-JET will empower both government and citizenry through:
Advocacy: the urgency of the energy transition is understandably lost on many African governments and communities. The need for advocacy in this regard cannot be overemphasized. ICE-JET will work through media and town hall campaigns to raise grassroots awareness and aspirations and inspire the political will to undertake the clean energy transition.
Training: JET Africa, together with the ICE Energy Learning School (ICE-ELS) and other partners, will champion training programs with governments, companies, and places of learning. ICE-JET’s intention is to reform trainings and school syllabuses to amplify sustainability and clean energy technologies in the fields of research and education.
Empowerment: JET Africa will empower MSMEs to deliver innovative solutions to the problem of clean energy access. Together with partnered organizations, we would work to support entrepreneurship and company growth in small communities across Africa by providing access to accelerators, incubators, test beds, and commercialization services.
