Clean Energy Financial Opportunity

Monday, May 09, 2016

A Notice of Funding Opportunity (NFO) for the Clean Energy Finance Facility – Caribbean and Central America – CEFF-CCA was formally presented last week at the U.S. – Caribbean – Central American Energy Summit, hosted by U.S. Vice President Biden and attended by distinguished delegations from the countries of the CCA regions, including a number of heads of state.

On April 9, 2015, U.S. President Barack Obama announced CEFF-CCA, which is intended to catalyze greater private sector investment in clean energy projects in the two target regions. With this objective in mind, CEFF-CCA will leverage the expertise and resources of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Department of State (State Department) the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). The combined resources of USTDA and USAID in support of the CEFF-CCA Initiative will provide grant funding for clean energy projects in the development stage, namely to support early-stage technical, business/financing model strategy and structuring, and other feasibility studies needed to securing financing. CEFF-CCA will target both energy efficiency and renewable and clean energy projects and services.
