Country Lead

The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet (the Alliance) was launched on November 2, 2021 at COP26 with USD10 billion of committed capital to accelerate investment in green energy transitions and renewable energy solutions in developing and emerging economies.

The Role

This historic partnership leverages catalytic grant funding to unlock investment capital with the aim of mobilizing USD100 billion in public and private capital over the next decade to:

  • Reduce Carbon: Avoiding or averting over 4 billion tons of greenhouse gases
  • Expand Access: Extending sustainable, reliable, productive-use energy to 1 billion underserved people
  • Create Jobs: Enabling 150 million green jobs that generate inclusive economic growth
The Alliance serves as a platform for radical collaborative action and provides grant funding, technical assistance, and a range of financing options and facilities. The Alliance focuses on three types of energy projects:
  • Fossil fuel transition: Decommission & repurpose large, aging coal plants and installed diesel / HFO assets
  • Grid-based renewables: Deploy utilityscale renewable generation, storage, distribution, and transmission assets
  • Distributed Renewable Energy: Scale mini-grid and roof-top solutions to offgrid & underserved communities
Burundi is the first country to be selected following an open application to the Alliance for support. The governmental submission was well shaped and ready to implement and builds on developmental work completed by other Alliance partners who have laid the groundwork, including the development of a concessional model for the provision of power in rural areas which the government wishes to roll out
more broadly.
The Alliance will work with the government to build capacity to negotiate and deliver on Public Private Partnerships for rural electrification representing its interests and providing advice, finance and support whilst also ensuring that local developers are successful.
