Mini grids have been identified as a key platform to address critical electrification shortages in Africa. Creating successful mini grid ecosystems beyond pilot projects are now the focus of African governments facing severe shortages especially for their off-grid populations. Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Ghana are just some of the countries with frameworks and supportive policies indicating desire to expand energy access through mini grids. Foundations, donors and organizations are stepping up their financial support for mini grids, eg; in Tanzania alone the World Bank is setting the pace with a $209 million financing for a six-year Rural Electrification Expansion Programme.

This is a market in need of massive investment:
