SE4All Africa Hub launches upgraded version of the Green mini-grid helpdesk website

The SE4All Africa Hub, hosted by the African Development Bank, signed a service contract with a consortium of Energy 4 Impact and INENSUS GmbH, last year to provide technical assistance to developers of Green Mini-Grids and a comprehensive information service for developers in Africa.

The SE4All Africa Hub is implementing a Green Mini-Grid Market Development Program to facilitate across Africa the creation of a Green Mini-Grid movement and enabling environment funded through the Bank’s Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa.

The Energy 4 Impact/INENSUS consortium are providing business development services to Green Mini-Grid developers in Africa, assisting them on a wide range of issues, from business planning, market development and grid design to project finance, grid operation and maintenance.

The Green mini-grid helpdesk is part of this initiative and besides providing access to resources it is open to requests for support from mini-grid developers. Access the helpdesk here.
