Financing and Scaling Productive Use of Energy

Productive use of (renewable) energy (PUE) is commonly recognised as a potential contributor to economic development, particularly in food value chains. This paper focuses on the wider context of how to structure, scale and finance PUE as a sustainable business model. Furthermore, this publication emphasises the underlying financing challenges for PUE projects and companies in all application contexts (urban, rural, industrial, food value chain, etc.) and presents recommendations that may be integrated in financiers’ and investors’ approaches to PUE to better support the growth and financial sustainability of the sector.

Best Practices in Results-Based Financing for Mini-Grids

This study assesses the impact and effectiveness of results-based financing (RBF) projects and derives key recommendations for setting up RBF mechanisms in mini-grid programmes. The study was led by the Green People’s Energy for Africa (GBE), taps into approaches by the Energy Autonomous Villages initiative funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ), and facilitated through a Leveraged Partnership by GET.transform.

Grid-Connected Distributed Generation in Africa

This manual on Distributed Renewable Energy (DRE) highlights the role technical assistance can play in developing favourable conditions for DRE deployment in Africa, as supported by GIZ projects organised under the Sector Network Energy in Sub-Sahara Africa (SN Energy SSA). It has been prepared under the guidance of the Working Group on Grid-Connected Renewable Energy, the South African-German Energy Programme (SAGEN), Strengthening the Market for Solar Power in Tunisia (RMS) and GET.transform. The manual serves as a reference document for policy-makers and technical assistance providers looking to implement DRE projects.

The Role of Sustainable Energy Access in the Migration Debate

This paper aims to explore interlinkages between sustainable energy access and migration. Firstly, the paper describes the role energy plays in the migration debate. Secondly, it investigates the links between drivers of migration related to energy access before migration occurs. Furthermore, it presents ideas on the contribution sustainable energy access might make, depending on different migration patterns.
