Following the announcement of a $3 million public-private partnership in 2017, the U.S. African Development Foundation (USADF) and ‘All On’, an independent impact investing company have officially opened the application period for the 2018 Nigeria Off-Grid Energy Challenge.

Aimed at identifying innovative off-grid solutions to “power up” underserved areas in Nigeria, the challenge will provide $100,000 per enterprise for successful applications to facilitate innovative, clean energy solutions to accelerate the country’s economic growth.

USADF and All On will consider proposals from 100% African-owned and 100% African-managed enterprises who may be developers of their own technology and/or acquiring and implementing technologies developed elsewhere.

To Apply, applicants:

  • Need to be legally registered in Nigeria
  • Should demonstrate the capacity to track and manage project resources
  • Should be able to operate in good standing with the local governments in their areas of operation.


Successful applicants will receive up to $100,000 in the form of 50% returnable capital from All On and 50% grant seed funding and technical assistance from USADF.


The 2018 application portal closes on March 1, 2018 and winners will be announced by the end of June 2018.
