The mini-grid and solar home system multi-technology approach – a way towards more finance for the sector?
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Learn from Lynne Wesonga of Crossboundary Access and Gillian-Alexandre Huart from ENGIE Energy Access about the untapped potential of integrating mini-grids, solar home systems and other power supply technologies under one unified management and financing structure. This innovative approach aims to harvest synergies, reduce costs, and improve profitability, thereby attracting new capital flows from climate financing and large-scale impact financiers.

For this integrated approach to rural electrification to materialize, there is a clear need for adaptability in policy frameworks and tender designs. Governments and grant providers must consider these factors in the evolution of funding structures, paving the way for increased private capital inflow into the sector.
 
 

To make multi-technology approaches in rural electrification a reality, collaboration across all sector participants is required. That's why the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) is excited to bring you to the forefront of clean energy investment at the ARE Energy Access Investment Forum (EAIF) 2024, taking place in Lagos, Nigeria from May 21-23, 2024.
