Building alliances between businesses, investors and government leaders to mobilize investment and create enabling environments for scaled clean energy in commercial and industrial sectors in Vietnam, Mexico, Colombia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Shifting corporate energy demand to clean sources can transform local markets and catalyze clean energy solutions. But in emerging markets, regulatory and market barriers have hindered increased clean energy consumption and slowed investment across supply chains.
The Clean Energy Investment Accelerator (CEIA) resolves these barriers by aggregating clean energy demand from large users to develop and test new purchasing models that bring down the cost of renewables. By bringing creditworthy off-takers into the market, we help the financial sector develop lower-cost financing models for renewable energy. By engaging with governments, we help create policy environments that support and attract investment in clean energy sectors, leading to economic development opportunities. Through regional knowledge-sharing, we develop best practices across markets.
The CEIA convenes leaders from the public and private sectors to develop and implement sensible policy solutions to unlock public and private sources of funding for clean energy solutions. The CEIA model revolves around three essential pillars for mobilizing clean energy investment at scale: purchasers, pipelines and policies. To build strong pillars, the CEIA:
Mobilizes private sector actors, particularly corporations, to secure and aggregate clean energy purchase commitments;
Develops tools and resources to grow the clean energy pipeline and close financing gaps; and
Works with the public sector to address policy and regulatory gaps to clean energy investment and deployment.
Through targeted public-private dialogues and tailored technical support, the CEIA amplifies private sector voices and aggregates clean energy demand of multiple buyers to reach economies of scale.
By working with companies at their global headquarters and local experts to address supply chain barriers, the CEIA catalyzes the market by leveraging partner resources for replication and external sources of capital for project financing. Together, these actions advance policy and financing frameworks to meet the clean energy needs of large purchasers, including commercial and industrial consumers.
The CEIA partners with countries including Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Mexico and Colombia. Through regional lesson-sharing, the CEIA is supporting Kenya, Morocco and other markets. To join the clean power movement and transform markets with us, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
