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.

A second funding round in Uganda is open and invites interested private sector companies to apply for funding before 4 May 2023. Read more about the new funding round (BGFA5).
