Financing renewable energy in South East Asia: Insights from practitioners
Nexus with collaborations from GERES and S3IDF and support from Rockefeller Brothers Fund and WISIONS mapped more than 100 financing schemes available to renewable energy entrepreneurs in South East Asia (SEA). Particularly for those enterprises in the start-up, scale-up, or growth stages, access to finance is the primary obstacle they must overcome on the path to scaling and implementing solutions in SEA. The report indicates that by supplying communities with sustainable and affordable clean energy solutions, SME's and social enterprises can simultaneously address the key drivers of poverty while reducing carbon emissions. This report wishes to inspire mutual understanding and improved collaboration addressing barriers to scaling low-carbon solutions.
