About Energising Development

Energising Development (EnDev) is an energy access partnership currently financed by six donor countries: the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Sweden. EnDev promotes sustainable access to modern energy services that meet the needs of the poor - long lasting, affordable, and appreciated by users. As of 2017, EnDev works in 25 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Since 2005, EnDev has taken a leading role at promoting access to Sustainable Energy for All. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) cooperates closely with the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) on the global programme level. Read more.

15.8 Million People with Energy Access

EnDev supports people gaining access to energy services in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In eleven years, EnDev has reached 15.8 million people for as little as EUR 20 per person. This experience could be the base to target all people without access to energy.

Since 2005 EnDev has helped

  • 15.8 million people obtain sustainable access to modern energy services in Africa, Asia and Latin America. This is more than people living in Norway and Switzerland combined;
  • more than 18,100 social institutions and 37,000 small enterprises benefit from sustainable access to modern energy services;
  • train 37,000 stove builders, craftswomen and -men, vendors and solar technicians.

Results-Based Finance

EnDev pilots Results-Based Financing (RBF) to develop new incentive-based markets for off-grid energy access. The first incentives were introduced to the markets in 2014. This website provides links to the national requests for proposals on the country pages of this site.
