Applications open for Africa Power Access AcceleratorVenture Central firstname.lastname@example.org
The “Africa Power Access Accelerator” program by the African Power Platform (APP) bridges the existing gap between project developers and consultants/technology providers/financiers.
The APP brings in to this program the efforts of different stakeholders to partner for the successful implementation of power projects in Africa.
Bringing together the expertise of a range of partners, the “Africa Power Access Accelerator” program creates a platform where developers can access everything required to get their project to implementation. From development expertise and funding, equity and debt providers, consultants, technology and equipment providers to full EPC and O&M services, we put viable projects on a success track.
The accelerator is open to businesses working on solar PV, hydro, wind, biomass, geothermal, gas, storage and hybrid solutions, utilising utility, mini-grids, and solar home systems. Projects can be at a variety of phases, and applications will be assessed using criteria such as support by local government, technologies deployed, financial and technical viability, environmental and social aspects, capabilities of the development team, and contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Projects applying by June 30 will be evaluated by September 30, and support will begin shortly thereafter.
