CTI Side Event at UNFCCC COP19 US Pavilion – Agenda

From Concept to Reality: Mobilizing Private Investment for Clean Energy in Africa

WHERE: US Pavilion, Zone D1-D2 Level 2
DATE: Thursday 14th November 2013
TIME: 13:30 – 14:30

Climate Technology Initiative Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) supports small and medium-sized clean energy developers to secure private sector financing for their projects. In just six years, CTI PFAN has helped more than 40 projects secure over $500 million in private sector financing. The program has grown significantly in Africa and today provides extensive coverage across the region. This event will take the audience inside the CTI PFAN approach, walking participants through the coaching process, project development, and ultimately the national level impact. Panelists will include Michael Feldner, a long time CTI PFAN coach in Africa, Humphrey Mulindi, developer of the Kaimosi Yala hydro project in Kenya, and Prince Lekan Fedina of Nigeria who sees firsthand the impacts of CTI PFAN for clean energy in his country.
