GET.invest Launches Online Assistance Platform for Green Energy Investments in Sub-Saharan Africa

  • At the EU-Africa Business Forum 2022 last week, GET.invest, a European programme managed by GIZ and funded by the European Union and four Member States, announced the launch of the pilot phase of the Team Europe One Stop Shop for Green Energy Investments.
  • This pilot phase will initially be powered by GET.invest.
  • The new online platform is an evolution of existing services and aims to answer the need for a single access point to European support and financing instruments for clean energy solutions in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • As such, it bundles the European contribution to the green energy transition in Africa.

Project and business developers operating in partner countries can visit the platform to filter through European funding and apply for advisory support to make their proposals bankable and link them with suitable financiers. The One Stop Shop also aims to act as an intermediary for investors and financiers interested in support for their pipeline development or listing their offer in the database.

The launch event, facilitated by GET.invest in the course of the EU-Africa Business Forum 2022, was attended by representatives from the European Commission, the leading international business association Alliance for Rural Electrification and the RES4Africa foundation.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
