This programme - implemented by the Energising Development (EnDev) partnership, managed by GIZ and RVO – employs a Results Based Financing (RBF) approach to overcome identified market failures that are constraining private sector investment in low carbon energy access (electricity and cooking) in developing countries. This programme targets a range of benefits, including economic growth (through the creation of enterprises and jobs for men and women), reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and improvements in health as a result of clean cooking methods (particularly for women and young children). The programme has expanded considerably in scope since its initial design, and now implements 17 projects as opposed to the 10 originally planned. This means that the portfolio of RBF approaches has the potential to gather an even broader range of lessons than had first been anticipated. Already the approach taken in this programme is influencing the wider energy access community.

The African Renewable Energy Fund (AREF) targets investments in small to medium size energy generation projects that generate energy from the following renewable and clean energy sources: hydro, wind, solar, and biomass projects, certain geothermal projects and certain stranded natural gas projects. In addition, the Fund focuses on building technical and financial capacity of the local developers it partners with to enable them to roll out additional power projects to meet the growing demand for energy resulting from increasing urbanization and economic growth.

AUDA-NEPAD Renewable Energy focuses on macro & mini off-grid technology with the overall objective of increasing electricity access in countries where access is less than 20% such as Sierra Leone, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso, DRC, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Uganda, Burundi, Eswatini and Eritrea. The initiative uses an integrated approach to broaden the socio-economic impacts of energy access through the productive use of energy, linking with climate smart agriculture and improved access to clean water. In addition to the traditional renewable energy sources, the programme has a bioenergy component that takes into consideration, the transformation of crop residue into modern bioenergy (e.g. biogas and biodiesel). The programme implementation strategy is anchored on across multi-sectoral stakeholders coordination comprising (government line ministers, private sector, academia, communities and development partners) to collectively identified projects with three impacts; socio economic, resilience and human wellbeing while through national project steering committees established at each country level foster smooth execution, operationalization and ownership structure. Ultimately, the programme aims to accelerate clean energy transition in Africa.
