$242 million for clean energy in 10 developing countries

This week at the Sustainable Energy for All Forum in Kigali, Rwanda, we announced a $242 million initiative to help 10 developing nations power their futures with clean and renewable energy.

The investments will add 10 new countries to our existing clean energy work in seven countries and the European Union. We’re building on our previous efforts to move the world away from coal and accelerate a global clean energy transition.

“We’ve seen that it’s possible to increase access to affordable power, improve public health, and fight climate change all at the same time – and to make progress quickly in each area.” – Mike Bloomberg

By ramping up solar, wind, and other renewables, we can end reliance on fossil fuels around the world.

The investments will allow African countries and countries around the world to power homes, schools, hospitals, businesses and more with energy resources that are cheaper and cleaner than fossil fuels.
