COFIDES invites private entities (i.e. companies, consultants, commercial banks, fund managers…) to submit proposals in the framework of the Renewable Energy Support Programme for Sub-Saharan Africa, mainly in rural areas, focusing on off-grid solutions, in order to improve energy access in underserved rural and/or peri-urban areas and enhancing productive uses of energy.

The RFP intends to identify projects that are in line with the following characteristics:

  • Mini/off-grid renewable power Generation proposals.
  • In underserved areas (rural and/or periurban).
  • Special consideration to productive uses of energy.

A maximum of 28 EUR million will be available to provide subordinated debt to the projects. The resources for financing specific projects under the PIP will be made available through FONPRODE (Development Fund managed by AECID), with the backing of the European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD) guarantee.

There is no limit to the number of Concept Notes that a single private institution or entity may submit.

Extended deadline for submission of proposals:  15/07/2020.
