 Connecting clean energy entrepreneurs to financing  

CTI PFAN video icon‌Efforts 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. 

What are network connected devices and why do we care about their energy use?

EDNA video The Electronic Devices and Networks Annex (EDNA), which operates under the IEA Technology Collaboration Programme on Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment, focuses on monitoring, measuring and reporting on the energy consumed by network connected devices and their associated networks. Network connected devices offer enormous opportunities for energy management. At the same time, there is a responsibility to ensure that these devices use a minimal amount of energy to stay connected. This short video explains what is meant by network connected devices and why we should care about their energy use.
