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.
Projects selected via IRENA/ADFD Project Facility will support poverty alleviation through renewable energy.
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).
