About the project

CEI Africa is a new finance facility aiming to increase access to affordable, reliable, and clean electricity with a focus on communities in ODA recipient countries in Sub-Saharan Africa that are not connected to the national electricity grid.
CEI Africa is a foundation incorporated by KfW on behalf of Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) providing a one-stop-shop approach to financing by offering a combination of debt, equity, RBF grants and technical assistance to support access to energy for households, small and medium sized businesses and other relevant clients, like communal amenities (e.g. health centres, schools).

CEI Africa’s results based financing window is initially EUR 21M and focused entirely on GMGs. The CEI Africa debt/equity window is initially EUR 28M to be invested alongside Crowdlenders and local financial institutions in off- grid energy companies.

About the project

The Energy Access Relief Fund (EARF) has been designed to provide up to 4-year tenure, subordinated, unsecured, low-cost, subsidized loans to viable companies that are facing liquidity challenges due to COVID-19. The fund intends to focus on the smaller to mid- sized energy access companies that are addressing the needs of the bottom of the pyramid consumers and expects to make about 90-100 loans. While the fund will seek to be as inclusive as possible, its primary focus is expected to be on loans of less than $1M, within a range of $100K to $2.5M.

Energy Access Relief Fund partners and capital providers continue to work toward a first close.

About the project

Le Programme PHARES (Programme Haïtien d’Accès des communautés Rurales à l’Energie Solaire) est lancé par le Gouvernement Haïtien avec l’appui initial des programmes de financement HA-L1140-Amélioration de l’Access à l’électricité en Haïti financé par la Banque Interaméricaine de Développement (BID), et TF0A5191-Projet Energie Renouvelable pour Tous financé par le fonds SREP à travers la Banque Mondiale (BM).

PHARES est développé par le Gouvernement Haïtien en étroite collaboration avec la BID et la BM, et mis en œuvre par le Ministère des Travaux Publics, Transports et Communications (MTPTC), à travers sa Cellule Energie qui est l’Autorité compétente à mener le Programme, l’Autorité Nationale de Régulation du Secteur de l’Energie (ANARSE) et l’Unité Technique d’Exécution du Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances (UTE-MEF), comme agence d’exécution1.

L’objectif principal de PHARES est d’augmenter l’accès des communautés rurales et péri-urbaines à l’énergie solaire et en particulier de fournir l’accès à l’électricité abordable, accessible, durable et de haute qualité, par des services énergétiques durables, à travers de mini-réseaux utilisant des énergies renouvelables, du stockage et des unités de production conventionnelles (si nécessaire), et développés et exploités par des opérateurs du secteur privé. Dans ce mix, au moins 50 % de l’énergie produite et consommée doit être générée à partir des énergies renouvelables. Le programme prévoit l’attribution de subventions pour assurer la durabilité des services fournis et un accès à ces services à des coûts abordables pour les utilisateurs.



The PHARES Program (Programme Haïtien d’Accès des communautés Rurales à l’Energie Solaire) is launched by the Government of Haiti with the initial support of the funding programs HA-L1140-Improving Electricity Access in Haiti funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and TF0A5191- Renewable Energy for All Project funded by SREP funds through the World Bank (WB).

PHARES is developed by the Government of Haiti in close collaboration with the IDB and the WB, and implemented by the Ministère des Travaux Publics, Transports et Communications (MTPTC), through its Energy Cell which is the competent Authority to carry out the Program, the Autorité Nationale de Régulation du Secteur de l’Energie (ANARSE) and the Unité Technique d’Exécution of the Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances (UTE-MEF), as executing agency.

The main objective of PHARES is to increase the access of rural and peri-urban communities to solar energy and in particular to provide access to affordable, accessible sustainable and high quality electricity, through sustainable energy services, through mini-grids using renewable energy, storage and conventional generation units (if necessary), developed and operated by private sector operators. In this mix, at least 50% of the energy produced and consumed must be generated from renewable energy sources. The Program provides subsidies to ensure the sustainability of the services provided and access to these services at affordable cost for the users.

About the project

The Stand-alone Solar for Productive Use (SSPU) component of the Universal Energy Facility (UEF) is designed to scale up electricity access to households, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) to power their income generating activities.
The SSPU programme offers results-based grant payments to eligible solar companies for verified end-user connections based on pre-determined standards. The programme will only support solar companies that provide end-user connections using the energy-as-a-service or lease-to-own business models.
The objectives of the SSPU programme includes:

Achieve over 480,000 end-user connections by scaling up the adoption of stand-alone solar systems and helping to alleviate the challenge of making upfront outright payment for MSMEs through sustainable business models.
De-risk investments in solar companies by supporting the expansion of their business operations through grant payments that can serve as a blended finance mechanism to crowd-in additional private capital.
Support Nigeria’s Energy Transition by displacing fuel generators and scaling up access to clean electricity for small businesses and households
