The Africa Minigrids Program

The Africa Minigrids Program (AMP) is a country-led technical assistance program for minigrids, active in an initial 18 African countries. AMP is expressly targeting early-stage minigrid markets, seeking to establish the enabling environment for subsequent private investment at scale. With GEF funding, the United Nations Development Programme will be implementing the program together with Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and the African Development Bank (AfDB), linking up with a wide array of minigrid stakeholders in Africa and beyond.

The program’s objective is to support access to clean energy by increasing the financial viability, and promoting scaled up commercial investment, in low-carbon minigrids in Africa, with a focus on cost-reduction levers and innovative business models.
