Project development services and business consultancy - Mini-grid project development and operation is a challenging business. We support mini-grid developers and operators all across the developing world in becoming profitable businesses through our business consultancy services
Mini-grid policies and regulations - Attracting private capital to mini-grids markets requires well-balanced policy and regulatory frameworks that equally protect the interests of private investors and electricity customers. With this in mind, we conduct in-depth framework studies for mini-grid projects across Africa.
Mini-grid Public-Private-Partnerships and tendering frameworks - Capital grants covering parts of the CAPEX required for mini-grids reduce the private investor’s risk and increase economic viability of the projects. We support governments and funding agencies in structuring public grant funding programs that are adjusted to local constraints while responding to the needs of private sector.
Technical due diligences and commissioning of mini-grids - Technical complexity of mini-grid setups may lead to risks of technical failure and economic losses. We provide expertise to identify and mitigate such risks, making sure that the mini-grid technology works reliably and fulfils its intended purpose.
