The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in December is briefing would-be applicants and interested stakeholders on the requirements and application process for its joint project-finance facility with the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD), now entering a second cycle.
The IRENA Secretariat is hosting four webinars – on interactive online discussions – on the IRENA/ADFD Project Facility, of which the first two took place on 18 November. Each webinar highlights the aims of the Facility, ADFD requirements, and the IRENA project selection process, as well as clarifying the application process from registration to submitting project proposals and receiving queries from applicants.
The IRENA/ADFD Project Facility (Facility) was born out of a commitment by IRENA’s host country, the United Arab Emirates, to support the new organisation’s mission to promote renewable energy worldwide. In 2009, the UAE promised concessional financing through ADFD of up to USD 350 million for IRENA-endorsed renewable energy projects in developing countries. The first of seven project selection cycles commenced in November 2012.
The remaining two IRENA/ADFD Project Facility webinars will take place on 18 December at 01:00 PM GST and 10:00 PM GST. Interested individuals can register here.
