EEP opens new Calls for Proposals

The Energy & Environment Partnership (EEP) has opened two new Calls for Proposals for co-funding renewable energy projects in southern and east Africa. Deadline is 25 April 2016.
As a challenge fund, the Energy and Environment Partnership Programme with Southern and East Africa (EEP S&EA) is seeking high-quality applications for projects in the two regions that can contribute to the reduction of poverty by promoting inclusive and job-creating green economy and by improving energy security while mitigating global climate change. EEP is jointly funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland (lead donor), the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) while the EEP Coordination Office (ECO) is hosted by KPMG.

CfP12 – Early Stage projects

The projects supported in CfP12 can be “last-mile” feasibility studies, pilot or demonstration projects. The scope of this Call for Proposals (CfPs) is limited to projects that deal with the development phase of renewable energy and energy saving/energy efficiency projects. The proposed project must comprise of activities that are part of a cycle leading to further investment and sustainable commercialization. The maximum grant allocation for a selected CfP12 project can fall in the range € 100 000 – 300 000 with a co-financing requirement a minimum of 30%.

CfP 13 – Market ready projects

The projects supported in CfFP13 are scale up to commercial operation, replication of commercially proven concepts to new markets (nationally or internationally) and rejuvenation of existing renewable energy and energy efficiency generation projects. Market Ready is to offer financing to projects that have a particularly strong possibility for raising other (commercial) sources of finance for project implementation, replication and/or scaling up. As concrete outputs, this result area will be characterized by the development of bankable renewable energy and energy efficiency demonstration of project proposals that involve technological, financing or business model innovation. In contrast to those projects to be financed under the early stage window (CfP12), the emphasis here is on sufficient project fundamentals, scaling up and replication by means of commercial financing. The maximum grant allocation for a selected CfP13 project can fall in the range € 200,000 – € 1,000,000 depending on the project scope and level of verifiable co-financing brought in by the project.
