Interested private institutions or entities (i.e. companies, consultants, commercial banks, fund managers…) are invited to submit proposals for mini/off-grid renewable power generation projects.

Deadline for submitting proposals is 15/07/2020.

More specifically the project should propose the development of small-scale electricity generation solutions based on renewable energies that distribute electricity to a limited number of customers (either households, industries, or both) through a distribution network that can operate in isolation from the national transmission networks.

The project should contribute to improve the supply of electricity in rural or peri-urban areas with significant benefits to people without access to reliable sources of energy.

This request for project proposals launched by the Spanish government is supported by the guarantee provided by the European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD).

A maximum of 28 million EUR will be mobilised for Sub-Saharan Africa.

The project shall contribute to the achievement of the following sustainable development objectives: "Access to affordable and clean energy", "Creation of sustainable and resilient infrastructure development", and "Urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts".
