Delivering on Energy and
The Global Energy Transformation Programme (GET.pro) is a European multi-donor platform that delivers on international energy and climate goals. Founded by the European Union and the member states Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria in 2018, GET.pro supports the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.
GET.pro offers well-defined and complementary instruments focusing on the private and the public sector. On the one hand, GET.invest mobilises private investments in decentralised renewable energy. On the other hand, GET.transform assists public partners in advancing their energy transitions. In addition, GET.pro facilitates strategic political dialogue, for instance as the host of the Secretariat of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP).
GET.pro directly contributes to European initiatives such as ElectriFI, Grüne Bürgerenergie or the NDC Partnership. With its scalable and flexible instruments and a streamlined approach, the programme helps fast-track the implementation of European flagship initiatives in the energy and climate sector and provide visibility to joint actions of both the European Union and its member states. By doing so, GET.pro tangibly contributes to international development goals set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Climate Agreement.
Creating Synergies for a
Global Energy Transformation
Mobilising Renewable Energy Investments
At the private sector level, GET.invest mobilises private investments in decentral renewable energy by supporting market access and by building a pipeline of bankable investment projects.
85 renewable energy projects translate into 7.4 million people with access to sustainable energy, €1,232 m investments and almost 940,000 t CO2 avoided per year.
Transforming Energy Sectors Globally
At the public sector level, GET.transform offers developing and emerging countries comprehensive advisory services to advance their energy sector transformations.
Attractive political and regulatory frameworks for sustainable energy.
Secretariat of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership
In addition, GET.pro promotes strategic dialogue between Africa and Europe as host of the Secretariat of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP).
Improved coherence of European energy initiatives in Africa and effective partnerships for an African energy transition.
Saving Resources through
While GET.invest and GET.transform operate directly in the private and the public sector, GET.pro provides the management platform for all donors and instruments. Funding partners can invest into instruments that help boost their own priorities. The joint management of the platform enables synergies between the different political initiatives and provides a sustained contribution towards a global energy transformation.
GET.pro offers central coordination functions, administration, financial management and a robust monitoring and evaluation system. Centralising these functions in one unit equipped with specialised personnel substantially increases efficiency and accountability while allowing the instruments to concentrate on implementation with the advantage of avoiding duplication of administrative resources within each instrument.
