Energising Development Partnership Programme (EnDev)

Search and Rescue teams reach Chautara, Nepal
The Energising Development Partnership Programme (EnDev) aims to contribute to inclusive green growth of developing countries by facilitating sustainable access to energy services for mainly rural and peri-urban population. EnDev is strongly outcome oriented, holding itself accountable for concrete and verifiable numbers of beneficiaries reached through the EnDev interventions.
Since 2005 EnDev has facilitated energy access for almost 14 million people in 24 developing countries. Through its results EnDev contributes to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Energy for All goal of universal access to energy in 2030, the MDG’s and the upcoming Sustainable Development Goals.

Energy access

EnDev supports long-term sustainability of energy access. Markets and infrastructure should be future-proof in technical, economic and social sense. Technologies comprise solar, grid, micro hydro, improved cook stoves and domestic biogas. Economically, access should be affordable and safe for consumers, and profit making for service providers. Socially, products should fit the needs and wishes of the consumers and be within reach of especially the poor and underprivileged. EnDev is a multi-donor, multi-implementing partnership.


The program is funded by the Directorate General for International Cooperation of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA-NL), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA-NO), the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the UK Department for International Development (DFID), and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The implementation of the program is coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), together with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). Field implementation lies in the hands of GIZ, SNV, HIVOS, Practical Action, MAEVE and CLASP.
