A core function of the Handbook was to help IFC staff quickly identify weaknesses and potential gaps in different business models to promote a scale-up in energy access and rural electrification in Africa.
Developing a Bankable Business Model and Regulatory Framework for Rural Electrification in Chad
August 2014 – August 2015
United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO)
The focus of the project is to remove the technical, financial and institutional barriers to the development of renewable energy based mini-grids in rural Chad. This includes establishing a bankable framework for public-private partnership (PPP)-based investment in rural electrification in the country. This component will allow policy makers to better prioritize and effectively promote and support the development of RE sector market driven through measures to promote the private sector investment.
Developing National Energy Plans in West Africa
November 2013 – August 2015
Ecowas Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE)
E3 Analytics assisted ECREEE in its efforts to increase energy access and promote the use of renewable energy technologies for both on-grid and off-grid development throughout the ECOWAS region. E3 Analytics’ role as a member of the International Backstopping Team is to support individual Member States in the ECOWAS region to develop their National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAPs), National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs), as well as their SE4ALL Action Agendas. This included a series of workshops and training sessions on the financing, economic, technical, and regulatory aspects of renewable energy and energy efficiency development, as well as the importance of cleaner cooking solutions in accelerating the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable energy mix in the region. The project also involved assessing training and capacity building needs assessments for the fifteen (15) ECOWAS Member States.
Business Model Options for Off-grid Electrification in Chad
February 2014 – September 2014
Government of Chad; Clean Energy Solutions Center (CESC)
This project involved analyzing new and emerging business models for rural electrification being used around the world to increase energy access, with a focus on the use of solar PV. Case studies covered included Akkan in Morocco, Namibia, Bangladesh, India, and Tanzania, and featured both grant-funded as well as end-user financed business models. The analysis was designed to assist the government of Chad in developing a bankable framework for attracting private sector investment to rural electrification projects.
