FEI is expected to catalyze energy access for an estimated 3 million people, rooted in the Bank’s New Deal on Energy for Africa. The Facility will seek, through a stream-lined platform, to alleviate the barrier of high transaction costs faced by small scale projects and increase the flow of capital to the energy sector. While playing a catalytic role, the Facility will also seek to operate on a commercial basis.
