WHAT WE DO & TARGETS

The Green Mini Grid Facility Kenya will enhance access to energy in Kenya by encouraging private investment in renewable energy based mini-grids.  Supported by the United Kingdom, DfID will provide funding for investment grants, and technical assistance to both the grantees and the mini-grid sector as a whole to help develop the market place for mini-grids in Kenya. Ultimately, the GMG Facility will provide assistance to the private sector in a responsible manner so as to develop sustainable and scalable businesses providing energy access to all Kenyans.  Through the technical assistance and responsible grant disbursement, the GMG Facility will prepare businesses for longer term financing linking them with investment opportunities and financing such as
SUNREF (
https://www.sunref.org/en/) - a green credit line for companies developed by AFD.
