Energizing Finance: Scaling and Refining Finance in Countries with Large Energy Acces Gaps

This report, Energizing Finance – Scaling and Refining Finance in Countries with Large Energy Access Gaps, is a result of contributions from a range of experts in a collaborative research partnership among Sustainable Energy for All, the World Bank, the African Development Bank, Climate Policy Initiative, E3 Analytics and Practical Action Consulting that explores finance for energy access. We thank everyone who contributed to the development of the approach, data, analysis and the richness of this research and its results.

Many studies have estimated the amount of investment that is needed to meet energy access goals, but none have attempted to systematically analyze what finance these countries are actually committing to energy access, what is known about the disbursement of development finance for energy access or the challenges facing energy access enterprises in delivering modern energy services to more people, more affordably.

This new report, “Energizing Finance: Scaling and Refining Finance in Countries with Large Energy Access Gaps,” does exactly that. Energizing Finance explores these questions and offers insights and pathways to help governments, development finance institutions and other decision-makers to accelerate progress on energy access.
