Interview with the BMZ Special Representatives for Energy in Africa

Since its announcement by Federal Minister Dr Gerd Müller in 2017, the initiative Green People’s Energy for Africa has launched numerous projects in nine focus countries in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond. The two BMZ Special Representatives for Energy in Africa, Bärbel Höhn and Josef Göppel, play a special role in this regard: the initiative benefits from their many years of political experience and expertise in citizen-based renewable energy.

In this interview, they discuss about their voluntary commitment, why rural Africa should no longer remain a blank spot when it comes to energy supply, what distinguishes the initiative and what has been achieved so far.
