About this grant
For Tanzania’s rural communities, low economic growth and inequality are ubiquitous. Their ability to access sustainable, clean energy can play a key role in addressing these challenges. To move forward, there is a need for renewable energy technical skills, entrepreneurial skills for small business development and capacity building to encourage local financial institutions to lend to the small businesses and their customers. This is the crux of an "ecosystem approach" to support local off-grid clean energy development and deployment. Fraxen Consulting has assisted in developing these capacity-building initiatives, particularly leading in the development of a new Tanzanian consortium to work on clean energy. With this increase, Fraxen Consulting will enhance the coordination work among the ecosystem partners.
