This report - Forward-Looking Review of the Regional Strategy on Scaling Up Access to Modern Energy Services in the East African Community - reviewed Norwegian support to the energy sector of the East African Community (EAC) over the preiod 2010-2012. It was found that across the board stakeholders took a positive view on the role played by EAC Secretariat’s Energy Division in regional coordination and harmonisation, thus adding value to the regionalisation of inititives. The review covered all sub-sectors, including renewable energy sources. It also comprised a prospective exploration in a broader context of on-going and possible future energy-related activities of the EAC. The report recommended that Norwegian support be continued but  that the role of the EAC Energy Division be confined to that of a regional knowledge hub, while referring the execution of projects be to the national level as per the subsidiarity principle.
