3 Pillars of the REPP 2 TAF
Pillar 1: SME growth and project development support
The TAF will support REPP 2 investees through early-stage project preparation funding to de-risk project development, as well as through capacity building activities to make the sector more inclusive and accelerate growth. This is expected to lead to more skilled and experienced local SMEs and project developers.
Pillar 2: Gender equity
The TAF will provide targeted support both to earlier-stage female entrepreneurs who are not yet ready for REPP 2 financing, as well as to SMEs that offer products or services specifically designed to address the needs of women customers. This supports REPP 2's strategy for aligning with 2X's gender lens investing criteria.
Pillar 3: Enabling environment and knowledge mobilisation
The TAF will aim to improve the enabling environment for renewable energy development and investment mobilisation through targeted advocacy initiatives, strengthened public-private dialogue, and knowledge sharing.
