EDF Pulse Africa will reward projects in the following areas:

- Energy efficient solutions: innovative electrical products or services with low power consumption.
- Access to water: help people access water using electricity-based solutions (agriculture and domestic use).
Winners of the competition will benefit from “EDF Pulse Africa Factory”, a 12-month start-up acceleration programme, bringing together committed partners (public and private investors, mentors, experts, etc.) with the aim of coaching and supporting the growth of African start-ups. Three prizes will also be awarded to the three most promising start-ups, by the Grand Jury in Paris in December 2021 (1st: €15 000, 2nd: €10 000, 3rd: €5 000)
