USADF-All On Nigeria Off-Grid Energy Challenge

USADF and All On invite you to submit proposals for innovative off-grid solutions to “power up” underserved areas of Nigeria. Applicants should be developing, scaling up or extending energy technologies to off-grid areas of Nigeria. You can submit applications until 15 March, 2019.

The Off-Grid Energy Challenge is led by the U.S. African Development Foundation (USADF) to develop, scale-up or extend the use of proven technologies for off-grid energy to reach communities not served by existing power grids. Through the Challenge, USADF and its partners, including All On, General Electric (GE), and Power Africa support energy entrepreneurs in 9 countries across the continent, including Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia. To date, USADF has funded over 75 African energy entrepreneurs, totaling an investment of $7 million in off-grid energy solutions.

The Off-Grid Energy Challenge awards grants of up to $100,000 each to African enterprises providing off-grid solutions that deploy renewable resources and power local economic activities.  Challenge winners will have near-term solutions to power the needs of productive and commercial activities, including agriculture production and processing, off-farm businesses, and commercial enterprises.
