The Energy and Environment Partnership covering Southern and East Africa (EEP Africa) is a multi-donor fund providing early stage grant and catalytic financing to innovative clean energy projects, technologies and business models.
Since 2010, EEP Africa has been at the forefront of efforts to fast track clean energy access and sustainable and inclusive green growth, channeling more than EUR 57 million to 200+ pioneering projects with positive impacts on lives and livelihoods.
In January 2018, EEP Africa transitioned into a multi-donor trust fund managed by the Nordic Development Fund (NDF). This new chapter combines the strong EEP Africa brand and proven results-based delivery channel with a dynamic evolution of the facility, bringing on board new financing instruments, strengthened focus on the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and closer engagement with the downstream investor community.
Since 2010, EEP Africa has received funding support from Austria, Finland, NDF and the United Kingdom.
