<strong>DESCRIPTION:</strong> Sustainable Energy For All (SE4ALL) is committed to doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency worldwide. EE is expected to deliver half of the actions to achieve the Paris climate change agreement. Yet, EE financing needs to at least triple annually if these goals are to be realized. In this session we will examine SE4ALL’s high-impact Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform and explore creative financing and funding mechanisms that need to scale-up this critical work.
