About this grant

Many small, off-grid renewable energy companies have been launched over the past decade to address the energy access challenge in Sub-Saharan Africa. Most do not have access to financing that allows them to address needed innovations. To address these innovation challenges for the energy access sector, Stichting EnAccess was established. This general purpose funding will support its organizational development, as well as initial open source tools to accelerate energy access solutions that can drive sustainable, inclusive, and economically transformative development in off-grid communities throughout the world.
