The REACT sub-Saharan Africa (SSA REACT) is a project of 61 million USD funded by the Swedish Agency for International Development (SIDA).The program seeks to reduce poverty through a transformational increase in the use of renewable energy by non-network households in the target country. Its outcome will be private sector investment and innovation in low-cost clean energy and scale-catalyzed climate change adaptation technologies.

Focus Areas

  • Candidates must provide low-cost, cheap, quality, clean energy products and services that benefit the rural and peri-urban poor.
