SNV Netherlands Development Organisation in Kenya hereby invites eligible solar and stove distributors to submit their expression of interest (EOI) for partnership towards promoting solar products and clean cooking solutions for households, productive use in business settings and social institutions in Kakuma camp, Kalobeyei host community.

The Energising Development (EnDev) Programme is an energy access partnership currently financed by six donor countries – the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Sweden.

The Market Based Energy Access Project Phase II (MBEA II) is a continuation and a scaling up of the completed MBEA I which started in September 2017 as a pilot programme and ran until September 2019. Implemented within SNV EnDev Phase III, MBEA II focuses on market based approaches to energy access within the refugee setting in Kakuma refugee camp as well as the host community. MBEA II will promote supply, distribution and use of clean cooking and solar powered solutions through a mix of market based and social approaches.

The market-based approach in this case will be anchored with distributors of the targeted products in the refugee set-up and will include technical assistance and activity based financial facilitation. The social based approach will include partnerships with relevant agencies operating in the refugee camp in order to promote co-financing for solutions targeting social institutions

Proposals will be accepted from December 2019 until end of March 2021 on a rolling basis. The project may however end the application window earlier should there be 100% depletion of the available funding.
