Clean Energy Financing


This practice note explains how you can use public/private funding sources to help your clients obtain financing for both domestic and international clean energy projects. Clean energy companies, sometimes referred to as cleantech companies, often need enormous amounts of capital to scale up their technologies into commercially feasible projects. Finding this financing can be a challenge, as the return on investment may be too low to attract typical venture capital investors. These issues are compounded when a clean energy project is located in a developing country. Using the funding sources discussed here, you can help your clients navigate this complicated financial realm to get their projects off the ground.
