In the SADC region, renewable energy entrepreneurs are at the forefront of efforts to extend access to modern energy services as they are often the best placed to offer tailor-made local solutions. Such entrepreneurs, however, face serious challenges including business management and operations, as well as bringing their innovative ideas to fruition.
To overcome some of these challenges and strengthen the capacity of SADC-based renewable energy entrepreneurs the International Renewable Energy and Agency (IRENA) and the SADC Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREEE) established the Renewable Energy Entrepreneurship (Technical) Support Facility in SADC Region.
SADC-based entrepreneurs are invited to submit their applications for technical support in the following areas:
- Refining renewable energy project proposals in order to reach bankability.
- Enterprise development through the Facility’s mentorship and training programme.
The applications will go through a selection process and the successful applicants will be contacted.
*Please note that this is a Technical Support Facility. NO financial assistance will be provided.
