About this project


The Climate Aggregation Platform (CAP) will promote the scale-up of financial aggregation for small-scale, low-carbon energy assets in developing countries. The project aims to help build in-country pipelines of high-quality, standardised low-carbon energy assets and to develop new low-cost sources of financing, building awareness and trust with investors in this new asset class. In so doing, the project can contribute to improving the lives of citizens in developing countries, bringing about affordable, reliable and clean energy.
