Enabling development for all through access to well-governed clean energy services

Energy, Ecodevelopment and Resilience in Africa

HELIO started in 2013 to implement a two-year project that aims to identify the conditions for a Smart Energy Path (SEP) in Togo, Mali, Benin, which will support the development of bankable energy projects, and strengthen the capacity of national energy experts in defining the strategic steps of a SEP, gathering available knowledge and know-how.

Traitement de l’information pour les politiques énergétiques et l’écodéveloppement

Understanding the multidimensional characteristics of energy policies, including energy supply, demand and access, environmental, economic and technology aspects, and climate vulnerabilities, is critical for ensuring sustainable and climate friendly development. HELIO International has developed the TIPEE© methodology and indicators for measuring how energy policies contribute to ecodevelopment1 year after year. More.


Smart Energy Path

Smart Energy Paths (SEPs) refer to an approach to energy planning that aims to meet peoples’ needs and aspirations while at the same time being compatible with environmental sustainability and participatory governance. It is a goal-oriented energy planning based on energy service needs, and relying on diverse, flexible and renewable energy. Read more on our Smart Energy Path project: EERA.
