Team Europe One Stop Shop
Your Gateway to European Support for the Green Energy Transition
Clean energy is key to meet the twin challenge of energy access and climate change in emerging economies. Billions of euros of investment capital are therefore needed. Europe is a committed partner in this context, offering numerous financing and support facilities.
Navigating this landscape, however, can be a challenge, both for those who are looking for finance and other support as well as for those offering it. The Team Europe One Stop Shop is your gateway for information about and access to European support and financing instruments for clean energy in Africa.
- For energy companies and project developers, it provides a comprehensive overview of available solutions, and combines this with independent and tailor-made advisory services to facilitate and accelerate access.
- For providers of solutions, it creates visibility for the offered support and finance, and helps build a pipeline of viable investees.
The Team Europe One Stop Shop is part of the Team Europe Africa-EU Green Energy Initiative and it is powered by GET.invest.
A Team Europe initiative
This transition can only be achieved through a collaborative effort. Therefore, the European Union and Africa have joined forces through the Africa-EU Green Energy Team Europe Initiative. This initiative scales-up the European efforts to contribute to African people getting access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy services towards universal access. It is part of the Partnership for Green Transition and Energy Access, as proposed in the Comprehensive Strategy with Africa, of the external dimension of the European Green Deal (December 2019) and of the EU’s Global Response (April 2020) to fight the negative impacts of COVID-19.
The Team Europe One Stop Shop is an important element of the Africa-EU Green Energy Initiative. Powered by GET.invest, a European programme mobilizing investments and the private sector with a track record of more than 5 years, funded by the European Commission and several EU Member States, it aims at supporting the private sector to participate in and benefit from the initiative. In addition to the services outlined above, it provides for visibility, actively mobilises private sector actors, and engages with industry associations and other stakeholders.

This is complemented by capacity development, events, cooperation with associations, as well as information related to investments.
