IRENA project facilitation tools
To improve the quality of renewable energy projects and support early stage project development in developing countries, IRENA has developed numerous project facilitation tools and platforms designed to address selected bottlenecks in each of the project development phases.
IRENA and the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) have collaborated to create a joint Project Facility to finance transformative and replicable renewable energy projects in developing countries. The Facility offers concessional loans to support government-driven renewable energy projects recommended by IRENA to ADFD for funding in developing countries. Since January 2014, USD 189 million of ADFD loans have been allocated to 19 renewable energy projects recommended by IRENA, whilst over USD 387 million has been leveraged through additional funding sources to cover the rest of the project costs.
