Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa launches the Pre-Qualification stage of its first Call for Proposals

The Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa (BGFA) is opening the Pre-Qualification stage of our first Call for Proposals (BGFA1) today, inviting off-grid energy companies to compete for results-based funding to bring clean, modern and affordable energy to customers in peri-urban and rural areas of Burkina Faso, Liberia and Zambia. BGFA1 aims to incentivise off-grid energy companies to accelerate the establishment of new, long-term sustainable energy service subscriptions at scale. In total, some EUR 30 million is being offered to qualified, private off-grid energy service providers under three different Country Programmes, with funding opportunities split into a number of Funding Windows and Funding Lots. The contract size is expected to be EUR 1 – 4 million, depending on the target country and individual needs. The planned country programme for Mozambique has been postponed and will form part of a separate, subsequent Call for Proposals.
