The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment. ARPA-E awardees are unique because they are developing entirely new ways to generate, store, and use energy. ARPA-E projects have the potential to radically improve U.S. economic prosperity, national security, and environmental well being. We focus on transformational energy projects that can be meaningfully advanced with a small amount of funding over a defined period of time. Our streamlined awards process enables us to act quickly and catalyze cutting-edge areas of energy research.

Domestic financial institutions are usually at the forefront of commercial and developmental lending in their respective countries and some of the challenges faced by them include: (a) limited familiarity and experience with the sector and RE technologies, (b) lack of clarity about the project economics, (c) lack of proper financial and technical tools to appraise and manage loans and (d) limited knowledge on the risks associated with renewable energy projects.

IRENA can provide capacity building for domestic FI’s in member states, with the aim of giving the staff of domestic FI’s the knowledge, skills, tools and support to finance RE projects; and thereby support the creation of a commercially sustainable domestic lending market for RE investments.

Provide a broad diagnostic framework to identify a country’s potential energy sector challenges, particularly as related to a country’s dependency on oil. This framework assesses country vulnerability by focusing on specific energy sector conditions as reflected by the various indicators included here, which were chosen because they provide insights into the overall dynamics of the energy sector.

Illustrate the linkages between challenges (identified by the indicators) and potential interventions that should be considered when developing USAID mission’s programs to cope with the challenges related to oil dependency. (It is important to clarify that this tool does not automatically provides appropriate answers for all countries in the world. Individual assessments should be carried out to adjust and customize level of detail required for specific countries).

Provide a comprehensive bibliography organized in a manner that allows the user to explore direct links to papers, studies or reports illustrating the various interventions.
