Climate Technology Initiative - Private Financing Advisory Network

The CTI Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) identifies promising clean energy projects at an early stage and provides mentoring for development of a business plan, investment pitch, and growth strategy, significantly enhancing the possibility of financial closure.

Over 222 clean energy projects have been inducted into the CTI PFAN Project Development Pipeline. These projects include biogas, biomass, waste to energy, clean transport, wind, solar, small hydro and energy efficiency initiatives. Successfully 44 projects have achieved financial closure with over US$540 million of investment raised. Combined, these projects have the potential to mitigate over 2 million tons of CO2e per year and provide over 346 MW of Clean Generation Capacity.
