The 15th EEP Africa Call for Proposals

Focusing on promoting gender inclusion

The 15th EEP Africa Call for Proposals (CfP15) is focusing on promoting gender inclusion and creating economic and leadership opportunities for women across the clean energy sector.

EEP Africa invites applications from early stage off-grid and on-grid clean energy projects in the active development phase in Southern and East Africa. We are looking for projects with strong Concept Innovation, Development Impact, and Business Model & Financial Sustainability.


CfP15 is a gender-themed call. EEP Africa is looking for applications that propose and test innovative and best practise approaches to promote gender inclusion and create opportunities for women in the clean energy sector whilst also supporting the core business objectives of the applicants. These approaches may include, but are not limited to:

  • Inclusion of women in value chains
  • Development of women entrepreneurship, leadership & women-friendly working cultures
  • Promotion of women’s economic empowerment through productive use
  • Increase of access to energy finance for women (entrepreneurs and end users)
  • Development of women’s networks
  • We specifically welcome applications from women entrepreneurs and women-led organisations.


Under CfP15, applicants can apply for early-stage grants and repayable grants between EUR 200,000 —500,000. The minimum required co-financing is 30% of the total project budget.

Projects with a focus on the preparation of feasibility studies for an on-grid and/or utility-scale development, which is approaching a clearly definable financial close, are considered for repayable grants. All other projects are eligible for grant financing.
