As the global network of climate and clean energy financing advisors, we are offering our expertise in helping climate entrepreneurs towards ensuring business continuity in these turbulent times. Following the commencement of work with the first cohort of applicants a second window for support has just been opened. Please check the resources PFAN and partners are making available for you. While we give our priority attention and support to project developers from the PFAN network, we are in continuous dialogue with the investor and donor community to expand our support outside the existing network.

What is PFAN?

The Private Financing Advisory Network is a global network of climate and clean energy financing experts, which offers free business coaching and investment facilitation to entrepreneurs developing climate and clean energy projects in emerging markets.

Our goals are to build clean energy markets one business at a time, mitigate climate change and mobilise private investment in support of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Initiated by the UNFCCC and the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) in 2006, PFAN is hosted jointly by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP).
