Climate Investor One
Providing financing to develop renewable energy projects in regions with power deficits to reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions.
The 18 countries in this initiative are identified as experiencing sizable energy deficits while also being overly reliant on fossil fuels. A major constraint in clean energy investment is a lack of early-stage project financing, combined with insufficient domestic and overseas financing to support the creation of domestic renewable energy markets at scale.
Climate Investor One (CIO) is a blended finance facility. The first component of this programme is a development fund, which provides loans in the early stage of a project life cycle. The second component, a construction equity fund, will meet up to 75 percent of total construction costs in tandem with the project sponsor. Compared with conventional project financing, CIO removes the need for complex multi-party financing structures, with the potential to thereby reduce the time and cost associated with delivering renewable energy projects.
The programme / project has an estimated lifespan of 20 years.
