The Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF) for East Africa is seeking input for an online survey by the geothermal sector to gather market information on the financing situation for geothermal projects in East Africa.

Today, the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF) has launched an online survey, for which it is seeking input from developers.

After five successful Application Rounds of the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF) with 30 awarded projects, the Regional Geothermal Coordination Unit (RGCU) of the African Union Commission (AUC) is currently assessing the potential of a scope extension. Therefore, the RGCU would like to gather market information both for

  • the financing situation from the exploration phase up to the power plant operation, and for
  • direct-use projects in East Africa.

The results of this survey will form the informational base for the discussions with the relevant financing institutions and donors, in order to

  • develop further financial instruments for the advanced project phases, and to
  • assess the potential financial support for direct-use projects.

Please fill the survey form until 12 February 2020 on the following link:

Feel free to contact the GRMF team via the website

The survey will take approx. 15-20 minutes (depending on your internet connectivity).

Once the survey and the internal discussions are finalized, all stakeholders (including participants of this survey) as well as relevant media will be informed accordingly.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation and contribution to this next development stage of GRMF.

Your GRMF team

Note: All data as submitted by the participants will be kept confidential by the GRMF.
