About us

Energy 4 Impact is a non-profit organisation working with local businesses to extend access to energy in Africa, impacting the quality of life for millions of people. Growing sustainable clean energy markets improves livelihoods and accelerates economic growth.

We work in East and West Africa and operate from regional offices as well as our head office in London. The executive team reports to a Board of Trustees comprising private sector and development experts in renewable energy technology, energy policy, finance and investment.  

Energy 4 Impact, formerly known as GVEP International, was registered as a UK charity in 2007. It evolved from a partnership between the World Bank, UNDP and other bi-lateral donors, launched at the World Summit for Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2002.
