ECREEE, CTCN and PFAN have launched a call for proposals for women-led sustainable energy enterprises in West-Africa, as part of the CTCN/ECOWAS Project on Mainstreaming Gender for a Climate-Resilient Energy System in West Africa. Women-led businesses employing clean energy solutions to facilitate women’s economic empowerment in the ECOWAS countries and seeking investments of up to USD 50 million are invited to apply by the 20th of November 2017.
At least 10 projects or businesses will be selected and receive coaching support from experienced professionals for the development of a financially, socially and environmentally sustainable business plan, which will play a crucial role in subsequent investor outreach. Upon the completion of the coaching phase, the projects will be introduced to interested investors, and receive follow-up support and deal-making facilitation. PFAN and CTCN will work closely with female-led climate and clean energy businesses in the ECOWAS region to leverage their expertise as agents of change.
