Financial Schemes Assessment: A look into the successful transfer of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy technologies


Complementary with the Low Carbon Technology Assessment, RRC.AP also conducted a Financial Schemes Assessment on the successful transfer of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy technologies in Asia. It involved (1) the study of the funding scheme and processes as well as (2) case study analysis of projects in Bhutan, Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand that were successful in accessing funds through the Global Environment Facility, the Climate Investment Funds – Clean Technology Fund, and the Asian Development Bank.

The case studies focused on the experience of technology companies in participating in and bidding for projects both in sovereign and non-sovereign financing windows. The analysis highlighted the best practices and strategies towards a successful transfer of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies in the said countries.


Beginner's Guide to the Climate Change Mitigation Funding

January 2017


The Beginner’s Guide to the Climate Change Mitigation Funding has been designed for a multitude of stakeholders wishing to contribute to combatting climate change, while taking advantage of the emerging technologies; profiting from energy and resource-efficient approaches, and testing ingenious ideas. Securing adequate funding is often a first and crucial step on this path.

To facilitate this step, the guide provides its readers with a brief overview of the operational modalities of several major international financial institutions offering resources for the mitigation of climate change. These institutions include the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF). It is hoped that the guide will help many organisations in choosing a financial institution suitable for their needs, and embark on developing innovative project proposals.

The Ministry of the Environment of Japan provided financial support and intellectual leadership for the publication of this guide.
