Call for Applications: CLASP Higher Tier Cooking Component (HTCC) Results Based Financing (RBF)
Currently, less than 5% of Uganda has access to clean cooking. Modern, energy-efficient cooking can have significant health, economic, gender, and quality of life benefits for people and communities. CLASP is working to help higher-tier cookstove companies in Uganda scale the sales of affordable, cleaner, and modern cooking equipment through the Higher Tier Cooking Component (HTCC) Results Based Financing (RBF).
The program aims to strengthen the supply side of the clean cooking sector by supporting small and medium-sized enterprises with access to finance for upscaling, innovation and increasing affordability of higher-tier cookstoves in Uganda. The program works by supporting small and medium-sized enterprises to improve their business operations and access to finance.
Eligible companies include manufacturers and distributors of e-cooking (electric pressure cookers and electric induction stoves) and higher tier (3-5) biomass stoves.
How to take part
Interested companies should send in their applications by the end of the day on January, 25 2024.
The HTCC Uganda RBF is administered by CLASP in partnership with GIZ Uganda with support from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). Eligible companies can also apply for business development support training and mentorship implemented through the Energy Enterprise Coach (EEC) program which is administered by NIRAS. The procurement subsidies and the business development support are intended to help companies expand their reach and cater to a broader market, helping to deliver essential energy-efficient cooking products to more consumers in Uganda.
