The U.S.-Africa Clean Energy Standards Program (CESP) and ANSI
The event was the third of five workshops coordinated by ANSI under the second phase of the USTDA-funded U.S.-Africa CESP. The remaining workshops in this phase will likely focus on mini-grids and interconnection codes.
The CESP provides a platform for industry and government representatives from the U.S. and Sub-Saharan Africa to cooperate on standardization issues relevant to clean energy technologies and build the relationships necessary for further technical exchange. CESP also supports Power Africa's objectives, helping create an enabling environment and capacity of governments and private sector entities to increase both on-grid and off-grid energy access.
Organizations interested in co-sponsoring a CESP workshop are invited to complete the commercial benefit questionnaire here for review and approval by USTDA.
