The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German federal enterprise. GIZ supports the Federal German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ operates in more than 130 countries around the globe. In Malawi, GIZ has been working for more than 50 years. The German international cooperation currently focuses on three priority areas: education, health and private sector development in rural areas. In addition, to our work on these areas, we also work on public financial management and economic management. The Energising Development (EnDev) programme is a global energy access partnership active in 25 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America that focuses on access to energy through sustainable market creation. EnDev looks into consumer awareness and consumer protection by stimulating demand and ensuring supply of durable energy technologies to all. EnDev is supported by Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, UK Department for International Development, Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
Since 2005, EnDev has taken a leading role in promoting access to energy. In Malawi the Energising Development Programme (EnDev MW) is implemented by GIZ through a market-oriented and country-wide approach. By promoting clean cooking stoves, high quality, affordable and efficient picoPV systems and the usage of renewable energies for productive use the needs of the beneficiaries in Malawi are addressed with a bottom-up approach for market building. EnDev pushes for a continuous increase of energy access levels to allow for poverty alleviation and economic development. While striving for attributable and measurable results on the ground, EnDev will pursue opportunities for transformational change in the energy sector and is therefore following an iterative demand-driven approach. This flexibility is linked to a strong benchmarking which reflects EnDev’s strong results-orientation and commitment to achieve quantified goals. Through the support from the Embassy of Iceland in Lilongwe, EnDev MW has the opportunity in Mangochi district to intensify its efforts. EnDev MW will be implementing an integrated access to energy approach addressing the issues of cleaner cooking, off-grid household energy access, renewable energy for social institutions and improved energy access/ usage for productive use.
