The SDG Results: Access to renewable energy (SDG 7 Results) facility scheme – recently launched at a sector event for renewable energy experts – has been created to tackle these issues. It starts into its first tender round with a budget of €11.25 million. Grants are available between €250,000 and €2.5 million and will be made retrospectively, based on the number of people who have gained access to renewable energy technologies.
