GMG produced 2 concept notes focused on providing business technical assistance, capital and talent resources to catalyze the mini grid and productive use of energy sectors forward in Sub-Saharan Africa. One concept focuses on a venture studio/accelerator model that provides sufficient business tactical support, paired with early pilot to pre-seed/seed growth capital to help PUE actors scale and attract future investment, taking early innovations past a critical early growth stage. A second concept focuses on attracting and cultivating best-in-class finance and operations talent to the nascent, yet high-impact and critical PUE and mini grid sector to drive growth, efficiency, cross-sector collaboration and attract investment. Both concepts were developed in collaboration with key sector actors, and focused on critical areas of strengthening identified in the GMG Barriers & Opportunities with Appliances, PUE and Access to Finance Report.

These are the 2 final documents of the set of 6

The objective of this study is to provide an overview of the EEP mini-grid portfolio, highlight observations and lessons learned about challenges and opportunities in the mini-grid sector, and provide recommendations for mini-grid developers and the programmes that support them. Countries in Africa are struggling to balance an increasing demand for electricity with the high cost of extending national electricity grids with limited government budgets. With rapid technological development, renewable energy mini-grids are a practical solution to the challenge of electrifying rural areas. Find out more by downloading the EEP Study
