ESMAP / Lighting Global, GOGLA, and Africa Clean Energy invite you as we launch our End User Subsidy lab with the first in a series of webinars digging into the key lessons learned from existing end user subsidy pilots and projects applying end user subsidies. Our webinars will provide in-depth insight into the mechanics of specific end user subsidy designs, allow for cross-country knowledge sharing, and enable participants to directly interact with experienced practitioners.
Our webinar series will kick-off with a look at Rwanda, profiling the EnDev Pro Poor RBF and the government’s scale up under the Renewable Energy Fund (new window 5). Rwanda is one of the most cited subsidy programs in the off-grid solar space. While the high-level design is well-known, the intrinsic mechanics of implementing the pilot successfully have not yet been shared in detail. This webinar will provide stakeholders with the opportunity to delve into the technical elements that are crucial to a well-rounded and efficient end user subsidy design.
End User Subsidy Lab
The Rwanda webinar will mark the official launch of the End User Subsidy Lab, hosted by GOGLA, Africa Clean Energy, and ESMAP / Lighting Global. The Lab provides a platform for pooling knowledge resources, technical expertise, and funding, allowing several stakeholders to jointly design smart and effective end user subsidies. All stakeholders are welcome to learn or contribute to the lab with the resources available to them, be it knowledge and expertise, or funding.
