Green Energy and Climate Finance

Capacity Building on Green Energy and Climate Finance

What is Green Banking?

Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) investments are growing tremendously all over the world providing new business opportunities in the financial sector. The trainings offered by RENAC promote the opportunity to keep track with the state of the art of RE and EE finance and to benefit from new business opportunities in growing green markets.

With our capacity building programmes in the field of Green Energy and Climate Finance we aim to globally

  • Increase the availability and use of financing instruments for RE and EE projects
  • Increase the willingness of financial institutions to get involved in RE and EE finance
  • Facilitate the accessibility to global climate finance options

Economic and financial aspects have always been part of RENAC´s trainings on RE and EE technology. In 2015, at the same time as the enactment of the Paris Agreement, RENAC firstly developed and implemented a large scale capacity building programme specifically dealing with RE and EE finance, appropriate risk evaluation and mitigation schemes and accessibility of international climate finance options.

The project called “Green Banking” was funded by the German International Climate Initiative (IKI) supported through the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). Implemented between November 2015 and April 2019 “Green Banking” offered scholarships especially targeted to financial institutions from private and public institutions from the partner countries India, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

For our initial Green Banking project in South-East Asia, RENAC was awarded with the German Innovation Price for Climate and Environment (IKU). We are glad to be able to bring this successful training programme now to further regions.
