In its 6th event under the PWCET series, ARE and Green People’s Energy (GBE) are organising discussion on ‘Carbon Financing in the Decentralised Renewable Energy Sector’ on 24th August 2022 at 14:00 – 15:30 CEST.

With only 3% of climate finance directed toward decentralised renewable energy (DRE), the discussion will focus on carbon financing as an innovative mechanism complimenting the conventional funding mechanisms to power DRE projects. The webinar will explore the challenges faced by the private sector in securing funds for DRE projects and how carbon finance can be used to compliment the finance mix. 

Join the discussion and hear from the experts and companies who have tapped into carbon financing to raise capital for their DRE projects. The interventions will be followed by a moderated panel discussion including interaction with audience.
