The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with Grand Challenge for Development (SOGE), is hosting a no-cost webinar to discuss SOGE's new funding opportunity and answer your questions.
SOGE is a partnership of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Power Africa, UK Department for International Development's Energy Africa campaign (DFID), and the Shell Foundation. The Grand Challenge seeks to accelerate growth in the off-grid energy market to provide 20 million households in sub-Saharan Africa with access to clean and affordable modern energy services. SOGE funds early stage companies, incentivizes technological innovation, and supports critical elements of the off-grid ecosystem.
The new USAID funding opportunity is designed to increase private-sector investment in the household solar market, and support innovative technology solutions and business models across the household solar value chain that provide, or support the provision of, affordable energy access to low-income households and small businesses across sub-Saharan Africa. This funding window requires a 2:1 private investor commitment to proposed USAID funding.
The presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
