The FEI Project Preparation Facility (PPF) will play a critical role in supporting projects to “financial close” through reimbursable grants, enabling FEI ON-GRID to deploy debt more effectively. The PPF is set up with the objective of covering the shortage of outright “bankable” small-scale IPPs and mini-grids. It is therefore expected that the Fund Manager will get involved in financial and legal structuring, as well as validation of technical feasibility studies (resource assessment, engineering, environmental and social, etc.), to bring projects to the finishing line.

The HOMER Powering Health Tool is a free online model to create initial designs of electric power systems for health care facilities that have no other power supply or have grid electricity available for a predictable period of hours each day. The tool is intended for project managers, engineers and financiers in the energy industry to simplify the design process for such systems. The tool models optimal combinations of power supply options to meet electrical loads of a health facility at least cost based on the given inputs. It compares combinations of grid electricity (if available), batteries (lithium-ion or lead-acid), solar photovoltaics (PV), and generator sets fueled by diesel, gasoline or propane. The model runs entirely online and can be used an unlimited number of times with no need to sign in or download software.

The objective of the Program is to address market barriers that prevent the faster, more widespread or longer-term sustainable adoption of low-carbon technologies and business models designed to address climate change. These include, for example, the lack of financing for clean energy projects due to financial intermediaries’ lack of expertise and perceptions of high risk; the limited capacity, experience, and information available to companies that seek to develop clean energy projects; and the lack of a supportive enabling environment.

AREI is an African-led continental platform to accelerate access to clean, affordable and gender-sensitive renewable energy systems. Canada is providing a $150 million repayable contribution (returnable capital model) to IFC to invest in eligible renewable energy projects that support AREI objectives over a 25-year period. Canadian funds are expected to leverage an additional USD 350 million in public and private sector investments, thus “unlocking” private capital that would normally not be available to these projects.
