To mark its 10th birthday, GVEP is rebranding. The new identity includes a new name and logo, which reflects more accurately who we are and what our aims are for the next 10 years and beyond.

Global LEAP, USAID'S U.S. Global Development Lab and Power Africa are calling all tinkerers, scientists, refrigeration and off-grid energy experts, to give feedback on how they might design and structure their new competition.

GVEP is proud to welcome two new members, Linda Mabhena-Olagunju and Andrew Yager, to its Board of Trustees.
