Welcome to the ARUA Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Energy, hosted at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. The African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA) is an Africa-wide research network that aims to strengthen research on the continent and improve postgraduate training. Stellenbosch University is proud to contribute to this effort by hosting the CoE in Energy, and building a network of excellent African researchers around the common theme of energy. 

On this website you will find information on the CoE, our activities and collaborators, the projects we are busy with and opportunities to engage with us. Also take a look at our news page for interesting developments, and our blog where different writers will share their work and views on energy issues in Africa. 

We like meeting new people, and we believe that by working together, we can bring new African perspectives and ideas to the table to help solve energy issues in Africa. We are therefore pleased that you have taken the time to visit our website. Please do explore the CoE’s activities further on the other pages, or get in touch via the contact form.
