5. Alternative Financing

Ideas For Small-Scale Renewable Energy

This webinar is the 5. part of WISIONS Webinar Series, which aims to promote sustainable decentralized energy solutions in the global South and shed light onto important topics emerging from the ground.

Financing is always top of mind for energy practitioners working on small-scale renewable energy projects. Many organisations struggle by year on year with project funding, which limits the sustainability of many small-scale renewable energy efforts. Undeterred, however, non-profit organisations and social businesses are looking for novel solutions to the financing challenge, solutions that are essential for achieving the SDGs and climate goals.
