RFP - Renewable Energy Program for Sub-Saharan Africa

The European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD) combines a Guarantee Fund (of up to 1.5 billion EUR) with two regional investment platforms - the Investment Platform for Africa and the Neighbourhood Investment Platform.

Under the Investment windows of the Guarantee Fund, the pillar-assessed (accredited) entities can submit Proposed Investment Programs (PIP), which are the framework for specific projects to be defined and supported.

The two Spanish pillar-assessed entities (AECID and COFIDES) have jointly presented the Renewable Energy Program for Sub-Saharan Africa, mainly in rural areas which is the focus of this Request for Proposals (RfP).

The RfP intends to identify projects that are in line with the following characteristics:

  • Mini/off-grid renewable power Generation proposals.
  • In underserved areas (rural and/or periurban).
  • Special consideration to productive uses of energy.

A maximum of 28 EUR million will be available to provide subordinated debt to the projects.
