Clean Energy efforts are promoting access to clean and affordable energy systems and services.
UNDP-GEF works to address the urgent need to achieve greater access to clean energy for the poor, while at the same time enhancing the quality, security and affordability of energy services. In this highlighted initiative, UNDP-GEF aims at improving the energy access, use and supply through the promotion of distributed clean energy systems, based mainly on sustainable use of biomass and other renewable energies (like wind, solar and small hydro), delivering electricity (both on-grid/mini-grid and off-grid solutions), providing clean fuel for heating and cooking, promoting greater efficiency and the productive use of energy.
Risk reduction is at the core of EITI's renewable energy projects. The team's approach to reducing risk involves a multi-step process to creating an enabling environment under which the national policy framework, financing channels, administrative procedures and domestic technical expertise are strengthened and aligned to support the scale-up of renewable energy deployment.
