Dear Developers,

After five successful Application Rounds of the Geothermal Risk Mitigation Facility (GRMF) with 30 awarded projects, the Regional Geothermal Coordination Unit (RGCU) of the African Union Commission (AUC) would like to gather key facts of planned geothermal projects in Eastern Africa, in order to assess the market potential for a sixth Application Round.

We are looking for:

  • complete new geothermal projects, or
  • projects which have been rejected in the previous Applications Rounds.


The project activities can be:

  • surface studies including temperature gradient wells, or
  • exploration drilling and testing programmes

in one of the eleven eligible GRMF countries (see Figure 1).

Please fill the survey form until 6 March 2019 on this external link.

Feel free to contact the GRMF team via the website The survey will take approx. 10 minutes (depending on your internet connectivity).

If the assessment for a sixth Application Round is positive, it will be announced on the GRMF website, and other channels. Furthermore, all stakeholders (including participants of this survey) as well as relevant media will be informed accordingly.

Your GRMF team
