The ACP-EU Energy Facility was established in 2005 to co-finance projects on increasing access to modern and sustainable energy services for the poor in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. With the first Energy Facility (EFI), 74 projects were contracted for a total amount of €196 M, with total project cost of €430M. A second Energy Facility (EFII), with a total budget of €200 million, has been established for the period 2009-2013. A €100 million call for proposals, launched in November 2009, resulted in the selection of 65 projects for funding.

Under the first Energy Facility (EF 1) 74 projects were awarded with a Facility grant in 2007 and many of these projects have now ended or are nearing completion. As such, it is timely to consider some of the positive results and impacts that have been generated through these projects. Below is a brief summary which highlights some of the key impacts of an EF 1 project in Cape Verde. Over the coming weeks we will also be introducing examples of positive results from other projects.
The Second Call for Proposals of the Energy Facility with a budget of EUR 55 million was launched in March 2013, with a deadline for submission of Concept Notes and Full Applications on 3 June 2013.
All presentations from the Energy Facility Seminar in Kigali, 21-22 November 2012 are now uploaded on this website. During the 2-day seminar close to 30 presentations were made.
