Unlocking Finance for Renewable Energy in India

Related: Climate Change

‚ÄčIn April 2016, The David & Lucile Packard Foundation hosted a meeting regarding investment in renewable energy and innovative approaches to unlocking investment in distributed energy generation in urban and rural environments for energy-poor households and businesses in India.The purpose of the meeting was to bring together a community of foundations, grantees, and experienced advisors that can help shape strategies for overcoming this important challenge. The meeting began with an overview of the finance challenge and the current investment landscape with the latest investment trends followed by a discussion and brainstorm of potential opportunities to address the obstacles to dramatic growth. The second day of the meeting involved deep discussions exploring investments and financial models specific to off-grid energy access and rooftop solar markets.

Meridian supported planning, on-site logistics, and follow-up from the meeting. In preparation for the meeting, Meridian provided support for agenda development, and preparation of moderators and speakers.
