To help countries close their energy access gaps, we need a clear picture of the finance required. That means understanding how much finance they are already receiving, in what forms, how quickly committed funds get paid and which energy solutions are being financed.
The Energizing Finance research series is recognized as a valuable source of energy finance analysis and advice to policymakers, the finance sector, industry and civil society. It consists of in-depth primary research and analysis by Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) and partners.
On 14 October, SEforALL will release two new reports under the series:
Energizing Finance: Understanding the Landscape 2021 tracks finance for electricity and clean cooking committed in 2019 to 20 Sub-Saharan African and Asian countries – known as the high-impact countries (HICs) – that together are home to more than 80 percent of people globally without energy access. This report was developed in partnership with Climate Policy Initiative.
Energizing Finance: Taking the Pulse 2021 presents findings on the estimated volume and type of finance needed by enterprises and customers to achieve universal energy access for both electricity and clean cooking by 2030 in three focus countries: Mozambique, Ghana and Vietnam. This report was developed in partnership with Dalberg Advisors.
Join us as we launch this year’s research. In addition to sharing key findings, the event will feature panellists who will shed light on what is needed to unlock greater finance for energy access in the push to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 7 by 2030.
Full agenda to follow.
