EOI - Implementation of specific activities under the Green Mini-Grids Market Development Programme (GMG MDP), Quality Assurance business line
The African Development Bank hereby invites consulting firms to indicate their interest for the implementation of specific activities under the Green Mini-Grids Market Development Programme (GMG MDP), Quality Assurance business line. The first phase of a Green Mini-Grids Market Development Programme, with funding from the Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa (SEFA) was launched by the SEforALL Africa Hub in 2015, while phase two began in Q4 2017. The Programme aims to remove or reduce market barriers at regional scale and strengthen the ecosystem for the emergence of a thriving GMG sector in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Programme supports the efforts of relevant stakeholders, such as governments and project developers, in creating a favorable environment for scaling up mini-grid investment on the continent and expanding energy access to underserved communities through GMGs, thus contributing to the universal energy access objective of the New Deal on Energy for Africa. The GMG MDP has successfully positioned itself over the last two years at the center of the mini-grids movement in Africa. Phase 2 of the GMG MDP will transform the MDP into the “go to” one-stop-shop for mini-grids in Africa.
