CTI Private Financing Advisory Network joins the Climate Technology Centre and Network

The Climate Technology Initiative Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI PFAN) has been granted membership to the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), the operational arm of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism. The CTCN promotes accelerated, diversified and scaled-up transfer of environmentally sound technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation, in developing countries, in line with their sustainable development priorities. CTCN members are invited to play a meaningful role in information sharing and capacity building, to provide as appropriate, technical asistance in response to country requests, and to participate in outreach and networking activities.  

Central America moves toward increased clean energy investment   

Nine finalists presented their clean energy projects to potential investors and financiers at the recent Central American Forum for Clean Energy Financing (CAFCEF) held in Antigua, Guatemala on 22 October 2014. The three winning projects, from Belize, Panama and Costa Rica, were chosen based on their economic and financial viability and socio-environmental benefits. The Forum was promoted by CTI PFAN, a multilateral, public-private partnership initiated by the Climate Technology Initiative in co-operation with the UNFCCC's Expert Group on Technology Transfer.  CTI PFAN is currently working on more than 220 clean energy projects across Asia, Africa and Latin America and has already raised over USD 507,000,000 of investment for implementation of 42 clean energy projects.  More on the winners... 

Demand and supply technology briefs for modellers
