This roadmap identifies the key barriers to renewable energy deployment in the Maldives. The objective of the roadmap is to assist the Maldives in identifying optimal pathways for deploying a high share of renewable energy.
The capacity building roundtable for islands in the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and South China Sea was organised by IRENA through its SIDS Lighthouses Initiative.
Although vulnerable to the severest impacts of a warming planet, SIDS have historically contributed the least to global carbon emissions.
During Climate and Biodiversity Week at EXPO2020, IRENA brought together SIDS ministers, SEforALL, Masdar, the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD), among others, under one roof to discuss the obstacles that the SIDS face in expediting access to predictable and affordable finance for energy transition and climate action.
This report reviews the progress of innovative projects supported by IRENA/ADFD Project Facility, a partnership to expand renewable energy access in developing countries and fulfil Sustainable Development Goals.
The IRENA/ADFD Project Facility represents a partnership between the two key organisations to promote renewable energy in developing countries. This report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) reviews concrete progress over the first five years of their joint facility to finance such projects.
Maldives hosts inaugural Island Renewable Energy Initiative with IRENA in Malé
IRENA is now welcoming applications for a fourth round of funding to support renewable energy projects in developing countries. The funding round of approximately USD 50 million now available is part of a USD 350 million commitment by the UAE to provide concessional loans to projects endorsed by IRENA over seven funding cycles, through the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD).
