Energy Peace Partners

Energy Peace Partners leverages climate and finance solutions to promote peace in the world’s most fragile regions. Our vision is peace and stability for all powered by renewable energy.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the lowest energy access rates in the world, at only 46% of the population. Fragile states in Africa suffer from persistent energy poverty and low investment in the sector. Renewable energy is one of the most cost-effective ways of expanding electrification, but the challenges of fragile states deter investment.

Energy Peace Partners leverages the demonstrated success of the P-REC to provide catalytic capital that will support high impact projects in some of the hardest-to-reach communities.

Energy Peace Partners will:

  • Prioritize fragile countries in sub-Saharan Africa to maximize impact by mobilizing investment in hard-to-reach markets.
  • Provide upfront capital to developers in exchange for forward P-REC contracts that boost project economics.
  • Support smaller energy projects (mostly < 5 MW) that struggle to access investors and expand investor participation by aggregating small investments.
  • Promote climate equity by offering an entry point for multinational corporations to support climate-smart infrastructure that increases resilience and improves quality of life in under served communities.

Energy Peace Partners seeks to unlock catalytic capital to support the addition of new renewable energy capacity in fragile, energy poor countries while contributing to the achievement of numerous SDGs, including SDG 7 (energy access), SDG 13 (climate action) and SDG 16 (peace).
