The Energy and Environment Africa Innovation Window is opening a Call for Proposals inviting applications from early stage off-grid and on-grid clean energy projects in the active development phase in Southern and East Africa. The EEP Africa is a multi-donor fund providing early stage grant and catalytic finance to innovative clean energy projects, technologies and business models. 


Companies, non-profit and social enterprises and research institutes based in one of the target countries can apply for grants (from EUR 200,000 to EUR 500,000) and repayable grants (from EUR 500,000 to EUR 1,000,000). EEP Africa follows a competitive, two-stage application process. In the first stage, eligible applicants are invited to submit concept notes. Subject to EEP’s positive evaluation of the concept note, selected applicants are invited to submit a full proposal.
