Project Description

Regional Off-Grid Electrification Project (ROGEP) is designed as a robust and integrated regional program based on series of projects (SOP) placing Renewable Energy and Energy Access at the heart of the development of a sustainable ecosystem with a strong transformational potential. The ROGEP SOP includes interventions that need to be implemented at regional and country levels. The ROGEP SOP1 focuses on key regional interventions to develop a regional platform—on which the subsequent projects would be implemented. The ROGEP SOP1 will focus on supporting and developing viable business ecosystems in the project countries through a regional-level initiative. The main ROGEP SOP1 components are (a) Developing a regional stand-alone solar system market and (b) Providing access to finance for stand-alone solar system businesses.
