We work to transform lives and fight climate change through sustainable energy.
Our mission places us at the intersection of global energy, climate and development efforts. With our partners, we empower countries in the Global South to achieve energy transitions that are the foundation for sustainable development and fighting climate change.
Our work directly contributes to global efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 7 – affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all by 2030 – and net-zero emissions by mid-century.
Initiatives and Projects
We work with a wide range of partners on initiatives and projects that help countries secure the finance and technical assistance they need to implement their energy transitions.
Renewable Energy Manufacturing Initiative
Helping countries achieve energy security and economic growth through local manufacturing
Energy Transition and Investment Plans
Paving the way to universal energy access and net-zero emissions
Universal Energy Facility
Provides incentive payments to organizations deploying energy solution
Voluntary commitments to SDG7 and energy transitions from UN Member States and all other stakeholders
We develop and partner in initiatives focused on solutions that can be applied across multiple countries, such as catalysing energy project development by providing results-based grants or establishing local carbon markets.
We also work directly with countries to enable their energy transitions through improved energy data and planning, technical knowledge, partnerships, finance, and more.

Our integrated approach to energy transitions involves ensuring countries have the data, technical knowledge, partnerships, and finance they need to reach their goals. We deliver these critical enablers through:
Global advocacy and diplomacy: We seek to raise ambition and secure commitments towards sustainable energy through global advocacy and diplomacy with the United Nations system, the G20 and other global fora.
Targeted country support: We provide targeted technical and financial assistance to countries to pave the way for scaled-up energy investment and project implementation.
Actionable intelligence: We create practical analysis, tools and resources to enable action, and highlight best practices in policy, finance and business models for replication.
Our work is organized under a set of programmes that together act as a value chain of global influence and country support for just and equitable energy transitions.
