For Africa-focussed developers and sponsors in the ‘green’ energy market, development funds (“DFs”) can offer a means to fast-track project development and enhance bankability.

To help provide you with a better understanding of the funding options available in the market, we have produced a handy guide which profiles several DFs suited to Africa-based projects, summarising their respective offerings, eligibility and proposal criteria and the application process.

We hope that you find this useful. We would be delighted to discuss any aspect of this guide in more depth, as well as have a more general conversation with you on how we can help you achieve your strategic goals in the Africa renewable energy space.

You can download the guide here.
