The AllOn/NCIC renewable energy grant 2022 is now accepting applications from renewable energy startups.
The Nigeria Climate Innovation Center is hosting a 6-month incubation program (NCIC).
The Rockefeller Foundation financed All On Hub, which was funded by All On and off-grid Energy Impact Investment Firm via its technical support facility.
The program is designed to provide the participants with the skills and ability they need to influence and grow their initiatives from concept to successful full-fledged businesses.
Climate change has sparked a worldwide push to shift energy usage away from filthy and polluting fossil fuels and toward cleaner, more sustainable renewable sources.
This has prompted an ecosystem of climate-smart innovators, entrepreneurs, and green companies to create and implement alternative energy solutions in their own localities.
This story isn’t too unlike Nigeria’s energy crisis, where just around 60% of the country’s population has access to power, according to a USAID assessment.
To that end, Allon (through the Rockefeller Foundation), Enterprise Development Center (EDC), and Nigeria Climate Innovation Center (NCIC) have collaborated to create the “Embryo Incubation Program (EIP),” an incubation program aimed at identifying eligible early-stage businesses or startups in Nigeria’s renewable energy (RE) space.
