The development objective of the Emergency Electricity Access Project is to improve access to electricity in rural and peri-urban areas within the Republic of Yemen. The project has three components. 1) First component, Financing for off-grid solar. This component has two sub-component, (i) Providing basic electricity supply to households, United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) will engage eligible regulated, supervised Microfinance Institution (MFI) , help them set up financing windows for high-quality, small-scale solar solutions for rural and peri-urban households, and provide grants to beneficiaries to make the systems affordable. Access to grants will be limited to residents of rural and peri-urban districts and small solar products that the non-poor are less likely to use. The grant component will be explicit and transparent, and will be gradually phased out to build to a commercial market segment for small-scale, high-quality household solar products. A key goal in collaborating with MFIs is to establish solar microfinance structures in rural and peri-urban areas to make the solar market more inclusive, sustainable, and scalable in the long-term (for example, through the eventual expansion of product offerings).The specific choice of supported products will be finalized by UNOPS after conducting a rapid market assessment and a series of focus groups. (ii) Restoring electricity supply to critical services facilities,UNOPS will engage solar suppliers and installers to provide grant financed solar energy systems to critical service facilities in rural and peri-urban areas.To ensure readiness for implementation, a short list of predefined solutions and beneficiaries will be developed by UNOPS before effectiveness, including specification of standardized technical specifications and standards. 2) Second component, Implementation support
