Is your organisation a business or NGO? Would you like to contribute to access to sustainable energy for households in developing countries? If yes, then your project may be able to get support from the SDG 7 Results programme: Access to renewable energy.

This programme uses results-based financing. This means that SDG 7 Results only provides subsidies once the agreed results have been achieved. The subsidies are based on the number of people who have gained access to renewable energy technologies and services.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs they use the SDG 7 Results programme to contribute to the sustainable development goals. SDG 7 Results contributes to SDG 7: affordable and clean energy, as well as:

  • SDG 1: no poverty
  • SDG 3: good health and well-being
  • SDG 5: gender equality
  • SDG 8: decent work and economic growth
  • SDG 10: reduced inequalities
  • SDG 13: climate action.


  • SDG 7 Results aims to give 2 million people in developing countries access to renewable energy. Projects should contribute to one of the following goals:
    • access to electricity in homes;
    • access to clean cooking in homes.
  • With its projects, SDG 7 Results also wants to contribute to the following goals:
    • low-carbon climate-resilient development;
    • less gender inequality;
    • private sector development and employment, and
    • private investments in the renewable energy sector.
