Results of ENEA Access 2nd Call for Projects 2017

After receiving 50 applications from energy access enterprises in 17 African countries, ENEA team is pleased to announce the results of its 2nd Call for Projects 2017. The ENEA team selected 4 projects, which will all receive pro bono support from ENEA’s high calibre energy consultants. The companies are:

  • Sun Culture (Kenya) designs and sells solar-powered drip irrigation kits for smallholder farmers. ENEA will support Sun Culture in its commercial and distribution strategy for their new RainMaker product.
  • Nanoé (Madagascar) designs, manufactures and develops nano-grids to provide access to electricity to small groups of households and small businesses. ENEA will challenge and improve Nanoé’s operational model in order to help the firm reach scale.
  • Agsol (Australia/Kenya/Tanzania) manufactures solar powered agro-processing machines for off-grid farmers. Agsol is launching in East Africa in 2018, and ENEA will help design the firm’s East Africa market entry strategy.
  • Millennium Microgrid (Tanzania/US) develops, and finances micro-grid projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. ENEA will examine the energy and energy services needs of households and small business, in Millennium Microgrids proposed new microgrid sites.

Each of these 4 organizations will benefit from 35-100 days of pro bono consulting. ENEA consultants will work closely with the energy access start-ups and spend more than half of the pro bono consulting days in the field.

ENEA would like to thank all the candidates and all the members of the energy access community who have contributed to the success of this call for projects.

We urge all project holders who have not been selected to re-apply to our next call for projects in early 2018. Stay tuned!
