For Project Developers
PFAN provides a variety of services to clean energy businesses with the goal of helping them secure financial closure. PFAN’s core activity is coaching and mentoring project developers and businesses and facilitating linkages to investors and financing institutions. PFAN services are provided free of charge to entrepreneurs and project developers. For more information about the services provided please refer to PFAN Services.
Clean energy project developers can receive PFAN services through two tracks.
・Calls for proposals for workshops and financing forums are announced through the website and other channels, followed by project selection and short-listing, coaching and mentoring, and presentations to investors. Calls for proposals are generally bound to a specific region. Any open calls are listed below.
・When a regional call for proposals is open, unsolicited proposals from outside the specified region can also be submitted for review by PFAN coordinators. Selected projects are inducted into the pipeline and receive ongoing coaching.
More information about the PFAN project support process can be found in the supporting documents for each call. For an example, see this manual for a recent PFAN Call for Proposals in Asia.
