RECOVID provides non-reimbursable grants through a request for proposals. The overall objective of RECOVID is to support COVID-19 response and recovery efforts to the ECOWAS Member States through increased deployment and usage of reliable and affordable sustainable energy technologies and services. The Fund also seeks to increase the resilience of the health and social sectors, while supporting local private sector companies involved in the sustainable energy sector.
The specific objectives of RECOVID are:
To increase the resilience of the health and social beneficial sectors while supporting local private sector companies involved in the sustainable energy market.
To strengthen the socio-economic resilience of vulnerable communities by supporting initiatives in the productive use of energy (PUE) in high impact value chains (water and food).
RECOVID activities will facilitate the acquisition of clean energy solutions, mitigating existing financial barriers for the development and execution of small-sized RE&EE investments targeting vulnerable communities. The capacities, knowledge base and market access ability of local clean energy technology technologies and service companies will be enhanced. Networking, knowledge exchange and awareness rising on sustainable energy business opportunities will be facilitated.
