KOSAP SOLAR AND CLEAN COOKING SERVICE PROVIDERS RESULTS-BASED FINANCING (RBF) FACILITIES

Driven by the imperative to provide equal opportunities across the entire Kenyan territory as key to achieving Kenya’s Vision 2030, and the national target of achieving universal access to electricity by 2026 and universal access to clean cooking solutions by 2028, the Government of Kenya (GoK) seeks to close the energy access gap by providing electricity and clean cooking services to remote, low density, and traditionally underserved areas of the country. The GoK is currently implementing the Kenya Off-Grid Solar Access Project (KOSAP) with financing from the World Bank. The project covers 14 counties of Kenya: West Pokot, Turkana, Marsabit, Samburu, Isiolo, Mandera, Wajir, Garissa, Tana River, Lamu, Kilifi, Kwale, Taita Taveta and Narok.

SNV is the Facilities Manager for Component 2 of KOSAP which consists of two sub-components: (i) sub-component 2A which is a Solar Service Providers Results-Based Financing (SSP RBF) Facility; and (ii) sub-component 2B which is a Clean Cooking Solution Service Providers Results-Based Financing (CCS RBF) Facility. The project started in November 2018 and ends in May 2025.

The US$12 million Solar Service Providers RBF Facility and the US$3.2 million Clean Cooking Solution Service Providers RBF Facility are designed to compensate off-grid solar companies and clean cooking solutions providers respectively through Result-Based Financing for initial, ongoing incremental, and opportunity costs associated with expansion of operations in the 14 KOSAP Counties.

Applications will be accepted and evaluated on an ongoing basis with effect from the date of this advertisement. In case of any queries, please contact the KOSAP Facilities Manager via enquiries@kosap-fm.org

KFM will conduct a pre-application Webinar on 30th and 31st January 2024. The webinar link and time will be sent to the registered emails.
