USADF Off-Grid Energy Challenge

Power Africa is a broad U.S. Government initiative to drive growth by increasing access to reliable, affordable, and sustainable power and helping to ensure responsible, transparent and effective management of energy resources. In 2014, we launched the Off-Grid Energy Challenge to promote innovative and sustainable ways to deliver reliable energy to underserved communities.

The U.S. African Development Foundation is partnering with USAID and GE Africa to promote innovative solutions that develop, scale-up or extend the use of proven technologies for off-grid energy – reaching communities not served by existing power grids.

The Off-Grid Energy Challenge awards grants of up to $100,000 each to African companies and organizations 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.
