India

In India, CPI focuses on developing innovative finance and policy solutions in support of the renewable energy and green growth plans of the Government of India. We work with a host of partners including the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency through the management of a USD 10 million engagement for decentralized solar, and more recently with Encourage Capital and KfW on the build-up of financial intermediaries. 

The team expertise lies in renewable energy, electric mobility, forestry, fiscal instrument design, and the financial sector at large.
