The winning project/s will sign a joint development agreement with Access, under which the company will acquire an equity stake in the project/s and finance third party development costs such as feasibility studies, grid studies, environmental and social impact assessments and other due diligence fees.
The USD-5-million ACF competition aims to provide the expertise and funding needed to turn early stage African renewable energy projects into operational power plants. It attracted 55 submissions in less than two months from 18 countries in Africa across various renewable energy technologies, including solar, wind, hydro and biomass.
