Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa in Uganda

Currently, it is estimated that only 28% of the Ugandans have access to electricity.

The core function of BGFA is to address this need by providing financial incentives to selected private companies, which shall offer high-quality energy services and products under sustainable and inclusive market conditions to rural and peri-urban people in Uganda.

The Call for Proposals targeted at Uganda (BGFA3) closed for applications on 22 June 2021.
