Sustainable Energy Project Support. WISIONS makes grants for energy-related basic needs in developing countries through SEPS (i.e., Sustainable Energy Project Support). Thematic interests in SEPS include solar energy, biomass, biofuels, biogas, hydro power, wind power, and other topics of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Most grants to date have been awarded to NGOs for conservation and development, and to other civil society organizations, in the countries of project implementation.

APPLICATION: SEPS announces calls for applications. Each call has a defined theme within the general framework of energy-related basic needs.

Applicants submit a project profile; proposed budget; and calculation (if possible) of the project’s reduction in fossil primary energy and carbon dioxide emissions. Applicants also indicate how their projects meet technical, social, environmental, and scaling-up criteria.

Completed applications are sent to the Wuppertal Institute before the specified calendar deadline.
