US-India Clean Energy Finance

CPI manages the US-India Clean Energy Finance (USICEF) initiative: India’s first project preparation and pipeline development facility to support promising distributed solar projects develop into viable investment opportunities and drive long-term debt financing.

USICEF is a keystone of the commitment made between the Indian and US governments to mobilize finance for Indian distributed clean energy projects.

Since 2017, USICEF has identified over 30 early-stage businesses across 20 states in India and has committed a total of $5.1 million in grant-based funding to these projects.

The initiative is led by Dhruba Purkayastha.
