Mapping of clean energy mini-grid support providers and programmes

The clean energy mini-grid sector is crucial in providing clean energy access and alleviating poverty in developing countries, but is hampered by a number of barriers such as early stage market fragmentation and unmade linkages. To address this issue, the SE4All Clean Energy Mini-Grids HIO set out to map public, philanthropic and commercial sources of funding, technical and other support available for the implementation of clean energy mini-grids.

To do so, ARE on behalf of the HIO collected information on the relevant activities of a broad group of stakeholders from the whole clean energy mini-grids value chain. The results of this project, made possible by the kind financial support of the Rockefeller Foundation and GIZ as well as the input from a wide range of stakeholders in the mini-grid markets.
