FUNDRAISING AND FUNDING RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECTS
Access to funding for renewable energy projects is difficult to come by for communities at the last mile. Through membership to CEM, organisations have the chance of accessing funding pots available at or through CEM.
12 CBOs in 12 Districts of Malawi have been able to access funding from Scottish Government through our wor under Community Energy Development Programme. We are now building evidence on viability or bankability of renewable energy projects through conduction of Market Assessments in 16 communities across Malawi in an effort to help CBOs in those areas to access funding for their projects. Through CEM members also have the chance of forging partnerships to improve chances of getting funding. We also provide capacity building in development of renewable energy grants and business ideas. Members also get updates on funding links available and supported how to utilise them.
