Linking Global Finance to Small-Scale Clean Energy

Caroline Tresise • 1 July 2022

UNDP's Climate Aggregation Platform in partnership with the Climate Bonds Initiative launched a new report  Linking Global Finance to Small-Scale Clean Energy

This report explores the state of small-scale, low-carbon energy in developing countries as well as the barriers to financial aggregation, along with some proposed solutions and key considerations for market practitioners. The focus is on Sub-Saharan Africa, but the findings are broadly applicable to all developing regions, especially those with underdeveloped financial markets

The key takeaway from the report is that the 
Financial aggregation has the potential to unlock new sources of capital investment for distributed renewable energy projects and businesses in developing countries to address the triple threat of climate change, environmental degradation, and social inequalities but it requires complementary de-risking mechanisms to scale.
