The Private Financing Advisory Network is a global network of climate and clean energy financing experts, that aims to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs developing climate and clean energy projects and private sector investors.
PFAN achieves this by:
- providing free business coaching to projects, increasing the chances of attracting investment; and
- growing its investor outreach.
PFAN organises Investment Forums to showcase selected investment-ready projects to groups of investors and provides one-on-one Investment Facilitation services to investment-ready projects, shortening the path to further growth.
Our goals are to build clean energy markets one business at a time, mitigate climate change and mobilise private investment in support of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Goals.
PFAN accepts applications for projects in low- and middle-income countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Pacific Islands, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Central America and Caribbean Islands (see below for a full list of eligible countries).
To be eligible for PFAN support, your project or business must provide climate change adaptation benefits, or offer or use clean energy technologies, products or services, including, but not limited to, the activity areas below. PFAN is technology neutral, which means we do not prefer any technology over any other.
Proposals should demonstrate that the project is commercially and technically viable, and requires no or only minimal grant funding. If your project currently receives grant funding or has done so in the past, that does not affect eligibility.
