Note: For applicants requesting fast-tracked support during the Covid-19 crisis, this is substituted with the following minimum criteria that need to be met in order to allow us to deploy support efficiently:
the equivalent of €100,000 of turnover over the past 12 months as a proxy to justify the allocation of individual coaches and the associated cost;
a minimum of 5 staff employed (salary or results-based) as a proxy for the job impact of the crisis, and as an indicator for the cash needs of the company;
the business can demonstrate it had a sustainable funding plan at the end of February until 1 May 2020 (i.e. no funding gap before 1 May 2020).

The major part of the scope must be a renewable energy system investment. Hybrid systems with a reasonable share of renewable generation capacity are also eligible.
Supported models may comprise electricity generation, electricity distribution (in the case of mini-grids and stand-alone systems), mechanical energy and industrial / process heat or cooling, as well as clean cooking. Transmission projects or biofuels are not eligible.
Proposals must be conceptualized as revenue generating and meet a minimum economic viability and sustainability threshold.
Applicants must be located in (or proceeds to be used in) sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean or the Pacific region. Applications for all countries that form part of the sub-Saharan Africa, Caribbean and Pacific region are eligible for support.
