Emerging and frontier markets are not yet attracting enough capital to create the energy infrastructure for a high energy future for all.
The energy infrastructure space may seem crowded, with governments, multilateral development banks, bilateral agencies like the MCC and DFC, and initiatives like Power Africa and the UN’s Sustainable Energy for All. But these efforts are still not yet crowding-in enough capital to meet the energy needs. Additionally, many agencies are choosing specific technologies to support rather than the full range of least-cost options that countries need.
The Hub curates information about the different actors in energy finance to better inform decision makers about the options and tradeoffs. The Hub’s delivery of customized data-driven analysis helps these players enhance their own impact.
