Mobilising Private Finance: Experience from a decade of decarbonisation

One of the primary challenges slowing the deployment of renewable energy assets in developing countries is the “early stage financing gap.” While the costs of early stage development are comparatively low, the risks and barriers for investors and developers are extremely high, dynamic and constantly changing—especially in frontier markets.

The Seed Capital Assistance Facility (SCAF) is a public sector donor‐funded Project Preparation Facility (PPF) designed to address this challenge by supporting private sector investment entity managers and development companies working in high‑risk frontier markets in Africa and Asia. 

Mobilising Private Finance: Experience from a decade of decarbonisation describes the SCAF project, highlights the project impacts and outcomes while focusing on its innovative approach. The brochure also offers a range of case studies and best practices.
