GVEP provides strategic, technical, financial and operational support to early-stage energy businesses which employ technologies including energy efficient cookstoves and briquettes, solar lighting and home systems, biogas, and mini-grid electrification. Below are a few examples of our work:
A reliable source of energy in remote areas can have significant benefits for local families, hospitals, schools, as well as boost the productivity of local businesses. GVEP is working with project developers in East Africa to build mini-grids and small hydro systems.
Improving the provision of energy enhances productivity and boosts economic activity. GVEP helps various businesses expand through access to modern forms of energy in Senegal.
GVEP offers specialized advisory support to medium-sized energy access businesses that have the potential for growth and scale. We help them in various capacities: from developing their supply chain and route-to-market strategies, to accessing finance required for growth.
GVEP and local partner SEM Fund are supporting women’s economic empowerment through a three-year project, Economic Opportunities for Women in Senegal (EOWS), with financing from ENERGIA, the International Network on Gender and Sustainable Energy.
