The GCF-DBSA Embedded Generation Investment Programme (“EGIP”) will support the implementation of renewable energy projects with a capacity of 330 MW, which is comprised of 280 MW Solar PV and 50 MW Wind. This will be done through two components. The first component will provide credit support to private sector solar and wind Independent Power Producers established as special purpose vehicles that are backed by non-sovereign off-takers in order to enhance bankability of such renewable energy projects. The second component will provide credit support to special purpose vehicles, which are established and owned by Local Community Trusts (LCTs) and/or, Small, Medium and Micro-sized enterprises (SMMEs) to support such LCTs and SMMEs in obtaining and managing an equity ownership in local renewable energy sub-projects.

This programme has an estimated lifespan of 20 years.
