Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa Stakeholder Workshop took place last October 2 in Maputo, Mozambique.
The Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa is a planned extension of the Beyond the Grid Fund for Zambia, which was launched in 2016 and which has helped four companies bring access to clean, affordable off-grid energy to nearly 750,000 people to date.
The new Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa, with an initial funding target of EUR 48 million, will be implemented building on the success of Zambia programme. The programme pretend to expand its activities to Burkina Faso, Liberia and Mozambique, to support private companies entering the sector or expand their activities in off grid projects.
A team of experts is currently mapping the market and sector in order to design the funding round in Mozambique. This workshop intended to discuss, collect and systematize the contributions of the private sector in Mozambique.
The Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa is funded by the Government of Sweden. It is managed by the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO) as Facility Manager and the implementation is led by the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) as Programme Implementation Manager.
