ESMAP’s Global Facility on Mini Grids (GFMG) was launched in 2016 to increase the deployment of portfolios of mini grids in World Bank operations and client country electrification programs. At that time, only a few countries were including significant numbers of mini grids in their national electrification plans.
The GFMG has helped take mini grids from a niche to a mainstream solution, with an emphasis on robust national and international markets and policies driving the sector’s growth at scale in order to provide large numbers of people with access to high-quality, affordable electricity.
The GFMG is collaborating with the IFC, MIGA, and IDA operations teams to accelerate private sector investment in mini grids over the next five years.
