Description

The design, structuring, and implementation of an energy inclusion facility. The Facility will be focused on providing senior and mezzanine debt financing to small scale projects (on-grid, mini-grid and off-grid) with total costs less than USD 30 million and to distributed energy companies and other entities focused on off-grid energy solutions. The Facility will seek, through a stream-lined platform, to alleviate the barrier of high transaction costs faced by small scale projects and increase the flow of capital to the energy sector. While playing a catalytic role, the Facility will also seek to operate on a commercial basis.
