Synopsis: A central pillar of Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa is our direct financial support instrument for the private sector: results-based financing offered to incentivise off-grid energy companies to expand, grow and scale-up access to energy for customers living in rural and peri-urban areas of Sub-Saharan Africa.
BGFA supports the provision of modern, clean, affordable and sustainable off-grid energy services to underserved customers in rural and peri-urban areas. To incentivize off-grid energy companies to grow, expand and scale-up in challenging markets and areas, we offer results-based financing to private energy companies who have a track-record of successfully serving customers with sustainable energy. BGFA plans with intervals to launch new Call for Proposals – Funding Rounds – inviting off-grid energy companies to compete for BGFA funding for expansion into targeted Sub-Saharan African countries.
