The Incubator Programme, dubbed the ‘Umoja Incubator’, invites aspiring developers in the renewable energy industry who have big ideas but lack the experience or financial capabilities to submit their proposals to the Serengeti initiative.
The submitted proposals will be evaluated by the jury between June and September 2022. The winning project(s) will enter into a partnership with Serengeti Energy. The goal is to give them the tools needed to succeed and positively impact their communities and these include access to commercial and technical knowledge, and eventually funding.
