The Open Energy Technology Bulletin circulates news of activities and findings of the IEA Energy Technology Initiatives (ETIs). These multilateral groups are at the core of a vast network of senior technology experts - the IEA Energy Technology Network - that strives to accelerate technology deployment worldwide. In addition to carrying out independent studies, experts may also contribute to IEA analyses related to clean energy technologies and energy efficiency.
The Open Bulletin Technology Spotlight zooms in on a particularly interesting outcome reported
by one of the 39 IEA Energy Technology Initiatives.
Efforts to scale up investment in clean energy technology are often unsuccessful due to the problem of the "missing middle": many clean energy entrepreneurs have good ideas but cannot find financing, while many investors have difficulties identifying and vetting attractive investment opportunities. The CTI Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI PFAN), seeks to bridge that gap by mentoring emerging clean energy entrepreneurs to build project proposals and present them to a network of investors and financial institutions interested in clean energy markets. Have a project you want to develop? Watch this short video to learn more about CTI PFAN networks and operations.
