Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (18 April 2023)

EEP Africa, a financing facility hosted and managed by the Nordic Development Fund (NDF), is calling for applications for innovative early-stage clean energy projects in Eastern and Southern Africa. Applicants can apply for grants and repayable grants between EUR 200,000 —1,000,000, with a minimum required co-financing of 30-50% of the total project budget depending on the project phase and company maturity.

Private companies, start-ups, and social enterprises from any country can apply, including Ethiopia. However, applicants need to demonstrate local engagement in one or more of the EEP Africa target countries, which are Botswana, Burundi, Eswatini, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

The application process consists of two stages: an Expression of Interest (EoI) followed by a detailed Full Proposal. After submitting the EOI, applicants will participate in a virtual boot camp and pitching sessions. Candidates who are longlisted will proceed to the full proposal stage. It’s important to note that all proposals must be submitted via the EEP Africa online application platform, as proposals sent via email will not be considered.

Application guidelines, other detailed documents on eligibility and evaluation criteria, and the online application platform can be found here. If questions remain, send your inquiries to no later than Friday, 5 May 2023.

The deadline for all applications is 12 May 2023 at 12:00 (Helsinki time, GMT +3).
