Climate and Clean Energy Investment Forum – Vienna
On 16 May 2018, PFAN will hold its second global investment forum in Vienna, in conjunction with the Vienna Energy Forum.
Meet promising innovators and entrepreneurs and learn first-hand about investment-ready developing country climate & clean energy projects, featuring concrete opportunities to curb greenhouse gas emissions and improve climate change resilience through innovative business solutions.
- Business Plan Competition during which hand-picked investment-ready clean energy projects with an explicit gender dimension and located in West Africa will pitch directly to prospective investors.
- Investment clinic session with selected clean energy innovators and entrepreneurs facing financing experts.
- Inspirational keynote address by renewable energy thought leader.
- Presentation of the PFAN Global Awards by a panel of high-level representatives.
The investment-ready projects participating in the Business Plan Competition were selected from over 50 submissions to the ECREEE-CTCN-PFAN Call for Proposals for Women-led Sustainable Energy Enterprises in West Africa. This call formed part of the CTCN/ECOWAS Project on Mainstreaming Gender for a Climate-Resilient Energy System in West Africa. Find out more about this Call for Proposals here or in an article published in The Copenhagen Post (p.8).
The projects taking part in the Investment Clinics have been sourced from UNIDO’s Global Cleantech Innovation Programme, and are still undergoing PFAN coaching to reach investment-readiness.
Further information, including the programme and list of speakers, can be found on the event website for this Forum.
