Introduction to CTI Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI PFAN)
The CTI Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI PFAN) is a multilateral public-private partnership that nurtures promising, innovative clean and renewable energy projects by bridging the gap between investors and clean energy entrepreneurs and project developers.
CTI PFAN brings together private sector companies with experience in financing climate-friendly projects and technologies to screen business plans and select the most economically viable and environmentally beneficial projects. For those entrepreneurs and businesses selected, CTI PFAN provides guidance on feasibility, project structure, investment and financing, preparation of the business plan and introductions to investors.
In order to expand access to private capital markets to supplement the increasingly short supply of public resources, CTI PFAN was initiated by the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) in cooperation with the Expert Group on Technology Transfer (EGTT) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). CTI PFAN is designed to be an “open source” network to fit seamlessly with existing global and regional initiatives and to be inclusive of all stakeholders with an interest in clean energy financing.
CTI PFAN’s goals are to accelerate technology transfer and diffusion under the UNFCCC, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote low-carbon, sustainable economic development, and help facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy by increasing financing opportunities for promising clean energy projects. CTI PFAN accomplishes this by building a network of investors, entrepreneurs, technical experts and government representatives with a common goal of increasing the viability of clean and renewable energy.
